Quote #771 - Heart Flight #HeartFlight

17 Apr, 2017

"Fly, silly seabird
No dreams can possess you
No voices can blame you for sun on your wings ...
My dreams with the seagulls fly
Out of reach
Out of cry

Joni Mitchell
"Song to a Seagull"

"Look at the birds. Even flying
is born
out of nothing. The first sky
is inside you, open
at either end of day.
The work of wings
was always freedom, fastening
one heart to every falling thing.

Li-Young Lee
"One Heart"

I am ready to welcome the Vernal Equinox
a bit belated, but only now does it feel
like it has arrived,
through Pesach, Passover, Easter,
Rites of Eostre
Seeking revelation, redemption through
Sagas of resurrection,

Welcome, Spring.

Return to us, warmth and light,
long days,
migrating birds.

Reveal yourselves, new buds,
first leaves,
animals rubbing your eyes
from the long winter's sleep
inside your burrows,
evolving insects
emerging from your cocoons.

Return, reveal,
renew, open,
feel the sweet, crisp wind
ready to carry you through whatever is to come ...

With my heart and hope, battered
but unbroken, take wing
and fly ...
