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,
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.
