Daring to take wing ...

Standing blinking in the sun ...
we take a breath ...
the light overwhelming after all these years ...

Too long have we hidden ...
Too long have we feared ...
Too long have we denied ...

Standing blinking in the sun ...
the light is warm and welcoming ...
Our wings unfurl ...
Untested ... unproven ...
Too long have they lain unused ...

Standing blinking in the sun ...
the sky is open and blue ...
the possibilities are simply endless ...
Our wings unfurl ...
The breeze catches them ...
a tingle of excitement passes over us ...

Do we dare?
Can we fly ?
Shall we rise into the wind and dance amongst the clouds?

Standing blinking in the sun ...
after too many months in the darkness ...
the open sky invites us ...
the glorious sun welcomes us ...
our unfolding wings beckon us ...

Fly ... dare to fly ...
Be free ... soar ... twirl ...
Dance amongst the clouds ... reach for the stars ...
Dare to be bold ... dare to fly ...
Unfurl your wings and claim your dreams ...

Standing blinking in the sun ...
we need only dare to dream to take flight ...
We have the wings ... we have the dream ...
Dare only to be bold ... dare only to fly ...

(by me ... today ... may it be true for all of you ... )

Dear Rev. S.,

If only we could all take hold of the sentiments you express in your beautiful poem and actually LIVE them! Wow, what a concept, what an amazing experiment it would be for each and every one of us.
