First Flight

First Flight

A Poem by Arya_the_elven_lady

A poem about flying. I know, I`m completely crazy.

I am walking to the edge.
The cliff is so big, I feel my fear.
I come to terms with it.

My claws dig in to the ground,
soon I will try to fly.
If I fail, I will die.

With a deep breath, I spread my wings.
I am at the edge.
The height makes me dizzy.

I feel my legs push me,
I`ve leapt off the edge.
Falling, falling, fear floods my veins.

But my wings shoot open,
I level out, I`m flying.
Now I am in control, and I sigh in relief.

The sea speeds by below me, I can see the waves from far up.
Calm, I smile.
I am at home in the air at last.

Oh, I simply love the feel of flying in a dream.. Your words give us that sense of expectation and anxiety in the waiting.. the wanting.. And then you lift us all into the air to soar. Beautiful, vivid write!
