Someone Took My Wings
I rode the wind today as I floated on my wings.
The air was so pure as I heard the clouds sing.
My face aged a tomato red color as the sun shined.
My body transformed like grapes into a sweet wine.
I could see the earth with it’s grandeur sights.
The peak of mountains so tall with massive heights.
Lakes and oceans radiated the depths of bottom floors.
Dams holding water back with gigantic closed doors.
Feathered creatures soared with the power of the wind.
They were heading north to a place where they had been.
I saw green trees and vegetable and fruit growing ripe.
Fields were being irrigated with water from pvc pipes.
Along the way I caught sight of wild animals grazing.
People at sandy beaches letting the sun do the basting.
Then I saw weapons exploding and killing living things.
I suddenly plunged downward as someone took my wings.
