Flying High

Carry me high,

Up into the blue sky.

I need to float I want to fly.

I grow weary of the ties that bind

I need to leave it all behind.

Draped in royal purple

And midnight blue

I am ready to break through.

Flocks of ravens wing my heels

Amid the thermal my soul weals

I glide and whirl,

Down I tumble and twirl

Gloriously my satin wings unfurl.

I dash from horizon to the moon

Leaving vapour trails in rainbow


No not wispy white for me

High-flying honestly free.

Above the earth for all to see

My spirit escaped mercifully free,

OH! thank God at last, cut loose and flying free.

    Beautiful verse, but leaves me wondering, what does rhyme with purple? off to find out.

    The poem and its sentiments are good by themselves with their great ideas. The left margin format for two of the lines added value and strengthened meaning (IMHO)

    This is a great write,
    “Gloriously my satin wings unfurl.
    I dash from horizon to the moon
    Leaving vapour trails in rainbow
    hue.”- I really liked this line! 🙂
