Some Ordinary Flower

If the body could float,
of course you might ride motionless
on the breeze,
skydive aerial arms slowly
down this ravine
feel the fuzzled damp
of foam
lightly touch rock
some ordinary flower

Mmm - lovely. Thanks for sharing the gentle journey of this poem.

Thank you. I saw an eagle or hawk (not sure) on the same day. Too far away to capture, but how lucky they are to catch the thermals. I guess the narrator wants to be like the bird. Cheers, Helen
