Fly On

flutter and flapping
reach for the sky

ever higher
beyond the clouds is why

just a bit higher
another wingbeat
another breath

below lies the plains:
rivers, huts,
great mountains,
clouds I have surpassed

ever higher
straining, sweating

I can make it
just a little further
through that cloudbank:

I will reach the sun.
