People are beginning to fly

People are beginning to fly

A Poem by Leigh
"

This poem is about words doing what we want them to do.

"

 

Stretching and reaching with fingertips high

The people of Earth are beginning to fly

They’ve taken on the looks of the angels aloft

With white feathered wings so pure and so soft

 

They’re spiralling round trees and circling in loops

Trying out their wings and gathering in groups

Then setting their sights on places so far

There’s no need for buses, trains or a car

 

The airports are graveyards for rusty old planes

The land is so quiet with its disused roads and lanes

Over water and seas travelling they all go

To the far flung places they knew so long ago

 

When you’ve been close to heaven above

It's a tremendous feeling and one that you love

But the worst feeling of all is coming down

To reach hard land, to be on solid ground

 

The people of Earth are flying

I can see them out my window

I think it should say "Trying out their wings" not wing. Also I feel some of the lines don't flow as well as they should because they are too wordy. However, I really like the concept of the poem and so wish we could all sprout wings and fly off to distant shores, preferably before we die!

A fun fantasy piece for the first day of the year Leigh. It reminded me of Cold Lazarus for some reason.

It does have a fantasy, dreamlike quality. Your words show the reader how to fly, or at least look out the window.
