Day 23, “Flight”


Poem #23: “Flight”

In a dream
flying over
a black sea
dark and cold
arctic cold

Fast, in sync
birds in flight
knowing when to turn
speed up, slow down

Passing over seals
switching sides
striped dolphins
close enough to touch

Beluga whales
gibbous moons
in all their majesty
and I hear him

Mommy, did you see that?
Aren’t they amazing?
voiceless now
