Wish I Was

Wish I Was

A Poem by Leigh

Wish I was the breeze
Floating by
Gliding over land and sea
Free and easy
Seeing you there
I would kiss your face

Wish I was an Eagle
On warm golden air
An overlord of bronze
With all seeing eyes
I would swoop down
And take you to the clouds

Wish I was the ocean
With power all around
Ever fresh and surging
Forever at your shores
Trying to reach you and
Dying on your beaches

our connection with nature is undeniable. this speaks to me of freedom, innocence and rising anonymously above withtout being tied to identity. so much can be gleaned from this free-flowing journey removed from the things of life that hold us down. i will have to read the multiple times. i love your analogies and anything to do with nature. there is a wonderful spiritual aspect. good stuff ... :)

I love how you connected all the elements to the idea of freedom, while keeping a sense of ambiguity. Wonderful!

you`re welcome
What I read here is "I wish I was anonymous." The narrator conveys a desire to observe and touch from a distance, to hide or conceal their identity, perhaps to avoid pain, perhaps to possess supernatural powers that give and impose love. A moving poem that leaves the reader wanting to know the narrator a little more. An excellent write.

The anonymity adds to the mystery which isn’t necessarily advantageous
Wish I was able to find this sooner. ;)

The more simple things are the less that can go wrong
A feel of a free spirit rendered in a poetic beauty!

Yes, that’s the way it came out
to end with the ocean seemed apropos
left with waves of desire to reach the other
like the previous stanzas
each an iteration of a new wave of imaginative longing
pining in perpetuum
great imagery used throughout the piece
good write!
