Wish I Was

Wish I Was

A Poem by BL

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

You do the natural world right in this poem, with this metaphor; it's very well done. In today's modern civilization it's easy to forget that we are as much a part of that world as all the ocean's, it's beaches, all the birds in the sky, all the germs in the air and all animals on the ground.

A lovely poetic expression of love Leigh. Your way of taking three metaphors gives it a structure which is easy to follow but very effective.

This is the first poem I have read from Leigh, and it is a good one. Balanced, well paced with an excellent structure , it impresses with a clear voice. Good work, read it!

Beautiful flowing effortless poem of unity and harmony, balance in all. Being at one with mother nature. Breathing, living and fulfillment of presence.

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 ... :)
