First Flight

Standard

“The moment the first man sprang into being, moved by the breath of God, the depths of the center of his perfect soul blazed with the silent, magnificent flame of Wisdom.” Thomas Merton, The New Man

grey dawn rising
blaze of new light

purposeful, climbing,
breath of new height,

sharp beak piercing
song of first flight!

  1. WOW–you’ve risen to my fave poet blog. Can’t believe I might have missed it, without Betty’s suggestion. That’s what I love about the sense of community here.
