If I was a Bird

If I was a Bird

If I was a bird,
I’d spread wings like the majestic eagle
to soar high in the sky, where no earth
bound being can creep upon the quietus
of my spirit.
~
I’d
fly through the
comforting caress of
fingertip laced clouds,
praying for the soft
fall of a summer’s rain,
to wash away any
traces of my
passing.
~
I’d
tip toe past the eyes of dawn
and bask beneath twilight’s fade,
reminiscing on me, myself and
I when we once dreamed, had
faith, and believed.
~
I’d
run to the edge of
eternity just to die inside,
to
be reborn again
within the arms of a
curvaceous moon.
~
I’d
renew myself in the awe-ness
of life… etching soul starved
Scriptures… heralding my
return; but for now, I will
be content to just be.
