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…
Good one! 🙂
sweet dream…love the intense feeling here…
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.
Oh to turn into a bird and fly free like that..you have written a very beautiful dream.
We both need the freedom to fly and the comfort of reciprocal love.
ah a love story unfolding, always there is need to change the rules
have a nice Wednesday, thanks for stopping over to read mine
Unique take on the prompt. Conga rats.
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.
