Alight from the touch of Earth

Tredding earthly sod, earthbound creatures glance about.
Those whom by nature are limited by the mystery of gravity.
Some walk, some crawl, some large, some small.
Some climb, some leap, some purr, some speak.
When sun hides below the evening horizon,
various breeds lay to rest, while others are arising.
Yet, another kind abounds in another sphere,
living by other rules of planetary effects.
Set apart from those below, angelic in ability to peer,
from far above, at things limited to “down here”.
They have special gifts, those feathered and winged,
while landbound talk, purr, or growl, these others types sing.
Special bessings have been bestowed upon those on land, sea, or pond,
whom can alight from the touch of earth, to soar above and beyond.
