In The Night

Written for:  dVerse Poets Pub – Poetics:  Flights of Fancy  (posted by Laura Bloomsbury)

. Pen a poem that is about FLYING/FLIGHT (NOT FLEEING)
. Take ONE or MORE of our natural winged phenomena – bird, bat, insect, seed, flying          fish! (but NOT mythical creature with wings, NOT mechanical objects either)
. Your poem can be purely literal or mixed with metaphor or even allegory
. Write as subject or object; 1st or 3rd person
. Preferably use FREE VERSE (like Sandburg & Lawrence above) as that best suits the            subject of flying!

Angels and doves
sailed through air,
white, carefree,
wings whistling. I
knew they were there
to affect a change
to right wrongs
to render love
to sprinkle peace.
It did not matter
that I was fast asleep.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
