slim yachts of the element

A lifting gale of sea-gulls followed them; slim yachts of the element,
Natural growths of the sky, no wonder
Light wings to leave sea; but those grave weights toil, and are powerful.

In this world you’ve a soul for a compass
And a heart for a pair of wings
There’s a star on the far horizon
Rising bright in an azure sky
For the rest of the time that you’re given
Why walk when you can fly?
~ Mary Chapin Carpenter

    1. You are very welcome. It was spur of the moment shots as the birds flew in from behind me and ended up between me and the clouds with the sun behind the clouds.

    1. What a wonderful feeling, Jane! I wonder if you’ve seen the documentary, *Winged Migration*? It made me feel like I was flying…

Your thoughts are much appreciated...
