Flying… another glorious poem from Anita…

Image by


I run into a golden orb as the world holds its breath
Inside feels solid, ancient.
Despite my awkwardness, I move as one with the orb
Across fields, the roads with traffic flowing to and fro
I felt a strange comfort as we glide across the countryside
I no longer feel as if I am drifting alone
I am in the company of an old friend
The world outside sounds clear
I hear the wind alive with its own purpose
Colours vibrant, translucent, delicate as a butterfly’s wing
Birds flying by nod in some strange acknowledgement
Dipping their wings to one side
The way old fighter pilots used to do
How long I flew with my new companion
Was hard to tell, light outside still glowing
I felt a sudden sadness, my journey was about to end
I drop from the orb gently landing in a field of barley
I felt newly born into a world that has changed
My sadness came from the desire
 To have travelled through the night
To see the stars, how they might have changed
Maybe I can catch a ride tomorrow
Fly to the milky way and beyond
Who knows what magic lies around the next corner…?
