Wings nearly still, for one still moment
Outstretched, as feet lightly touch water
Then down, with ease, drifting with the waves
A sight to capture any poet
Whose dreams and thoughts of flight seem a blur
One and the same, this water and air
Floating on one, then the other, saved
From thoughts to words, returning him there
Day Twenty-Three (Take Two) of 2016 NaPoWriMo.

The photo is the same one I used with a haiku (Blue Geese) earlier today when responding to a photo challenge from Hugh’s Views & News.
