Jumbo jets vs jackdaws or jays

A Poem by S.zaynab.kamoonpury
"

*Nb. by midair duel i meant what i watched on TV, of eagles fighting in midair talons locked and all.

"
If only we could fly like
those that tweet or hoot
without aid of jet or
parachute

For I sure don't like
wings that roar
just so they can take off
and soar

Ah, to fly without petrol, diesel
or fuel
Oh, to halt that taloned midair
duel

Birds they don't pollute
the air
nor need they any airline
fare

So if only I too could rise
and glide
and let the wind be my
sole guide

I'd be happy to fly all the
way to 'em' faraway stars
if I was assured I'd risk
no charring scars.

Flying without aviation
formalities
I could be sightseeing
many more cities

Ah I so wish to fly just
like a jay or jackdaw
Then I'd fly across all and
every border
For I'd know nor follow
no man-made law!

You are truly soaring on the wings of love, imagination and poetry. Words do give us wings to fly that body of thought soaring with the emotions. Glad you are back and sharing your essence.

I wonder about flying when I see the number of issues birds deal with.
I am more inclined to find the concept of flying more attractive and the ability to poetically address flight, even more appealing.
However, it sounds like a great gift.

Hi, I haven't been online for a while. This is very good. Flying high is such a wonderful idea and gives the reader a brilliant picture in their minds.

Warm thanks yeahhh flying would be so fun!
Well you have certainly convinced me... maybe my future does lie up there somewhere... Very nicely penned... Poets can and do of course, often take giant leaps of faith, and occasionally they do soar and sometimes fly on the words they write and the words of others..... Thank you ... Neville

you are most welcome..
Your poem is more than special, finely written too. But, can't help feeling that it's our words that
enable us to fly higher than imagination could ever believe. We can think, adventure, write, see and feel, what heart and mind allows. Perhaps that's what you're saying.. in your own precious way.

many humans dream to fly like birds, to be free like birds, especially when they are dreamers, poets, their imaginations go far and wide, Your words are sweetly understandable, though You don't have the birds wings, but You have Your own own ones to spared and soar with :)

A nice poem of wishful longings.....

I am sure many of us have dream't of what we would do if we could soar on the wings of eagles. Just where would we fly with all that freedom? In what land would we build our nest to roost? It certainly would be much better to fly naturally than the way we humans are destined to. I guess there is nothing wrong with dreaming.

This was a nice little poem, not too strenuous, and simply worded and rhymed. In its simplicity, a job well done.

dear poet... yes, the birds are survivors and find shelter
and food which is amazing. We can enjoy their visits and
learn about the simple joys of enjoying nature in every season.
It would be wonderful to fly. Your poetry is clever and seems
to flow like a symphony of desire. truly, Pat
