I Wish

I wish the world was smaller

Had fewer rules

So I could

Turn into a bird

Fly free in the sky

Over land and sea

Kiss the breeze

Enter the open window

And wrap myself into you

Drawn into you

To feel your breath

Caressed by your whisper

Nested into your embrace

Held tight by your love

Gripped by your grace

Where I belong to you

and you belong to me

    ha. if you find out how you can change those rules,
    i would love to fly like a bird…what a cool perspective it would have to be from up there….and to feel the currents of the wind beneath the wings…

    Thanks for chiming in Alan. I like your poem. I enjoy the movement from wishing the world were different (ah yes, if only) to being nestled with the one you love.

    Unique take on the prompt. Conga rats.

  8. Even if the world could shrink even just a little bit and allow people to sprout wings–that would be my idea of heaven as well 🙂

    Sublime. The words o a dreamer.

    A sweet love story surfaces, beneath the deep thoughts. Beautiful!!!

    The world is slightly smaller when people travel around in planes. Still, they are too busy working to devote much time to appreciate the beauty of nature. They fly in planes and don’t have time to truly live.

    Alan, this completely swept me away! You wove such beautiful imagery, and kept that bird analogy going (nested), and the entire flow of the poem was light and airy. Gorgeous!

    What a delightful poem, Alan. This has a song-like quality to it and makes for a fine lyrical piece.
