Love gives you wings

Monkeys can’t fly he wailed
My bones are heavy, my homemade feathers stale
Loop-flapping thermals, cocooned by family
Fostered by a soaring Gull canopy
Plummeting, rising, air-streaming, flying?
Steady at last, love-lifted, gliding
Devotion spanning plumage he sings
Love gives you wings
family, love, devotion, lift, fly

Awesome story, wonderful poetry, love, support

  1. My favorite moment is “Plummeting, rising, air-streaming, flying?” It captures the roller coaster we all go on when we fall in love and take a leap of faith. And the “flying?” made me think of the times when I was younger when I wasn’t sure I was doing it right. That is, loving someone correctly. Great writing, LHN. A strong first entry!

  2. There’s so much energy and movement in your language here it really does bring flight to mind. This was my favourite line: “Fostered by a soaring Gull canopy.” I love the image and I think it’s wonderfully musical.
