To Fly Without Wings

i woke one autumn morning
a crispy golden feeling
in the air a new dawn flows
and by my window wind blows
trees sway bare with leaves falling
on crystal water sending ripples
sparkling drops splatter around
distorting a mirror of sky above

i look up at the autumn sky
tiny speckles are moving away
in a file of dots further away
i do realize what i do see
swans are finally flying high
i was bound to fly i do agree
if only i had grown wings
that favor was not gifted to me

but i am not sad even a tad
a gift born out of the kernel
is snuggled safe and warm
by me is my love so eternal
springs are for love newborn
nourished in summer days
in autumns when the leaves fall
love grows strong cozy and warm

i look at this spreading field
coated in endless auburn leaves
rustling playfully to wind they yield
i guess the earth feels warm tonight
in its coat of auburn leaves
beside me is my gift my love
my beauty my wings of freedom
the only crowned one in my kingdom

in this new dawn of autumn
i relish every feeling golden
when wind echoes in playful blows
and come up knocking at my door
for wings i don’t crave anymore
because my love makes me believe
i can trace the path a leaf weave
i can fly higher without wings


Swan Call

swans are flying high tonight
upon the endless orange skies
a call from winter i feel is high
they all forgot me they all fly away

there was sunlight bright and strong
a few days ago i remember
as i basked on a lake of silvery white
the music of her croon had my ears

from deep within was a sense of calm
i realized the taste of freedom
it held me high deep in her bosom
sparkling drops splattered on her silvery wings

why i wonder now why it took time
to realize they would never have called
i should have gone but it’s too late now
they are gone and she is gone too

i will watch them fly high and away
till this orange sky fades to dark
my silvery lake will then release
all it’s dark secrets hidden deep within
only for me because i stayed here
i stayed only because they left me here
