Flight of fancy

Flight of fancy

A Poem by MandaBear

For a prompt about flight. I hope you like it:)

Little bird readies his wings for the morning flight.
Breathing in the air of the day,
Spreading his wings for the grand adventure ahead.
Gathering the daylight under his feathers and begins to fly.

Chirping away in the blue summers day.
Soaring through the breeze as if its not there.
Seeing new sights and smelling new smells. 
Reaching innovative heights with a flip of a wing.

Hovering over a winter capped mountain,
Sailing across a titanic ocean,
Gliding near a park full of people,
Taking a rest to observe the wonders around him.

Once again taking to the air to wondrous places
Passing by a meadow of warm greens and browns.
Flowers and lakes all around.
Flying through the trees like an eagle.

Stopping only for a minute for food.
Found some crumbs and insects.
Filling his belly for the journey home.
Once again spreading his wings for flight.

Alas his journey must come to an end.
So much was seen and so much was heard.
Never will our winged friend forget; 
His flight of fancy.

Today he traveled like a bird
But flew like an eagle.

I loved the beautiful description in this, it was wonderful. It made me feel like I was seeing all those wonders instead of the bird. I thought that last part was great, "but flew like an eagle." So strong.
