Flight Through Time

Filed under: Poetry — migueltio @ 6:36 pm

 

She was butterfly

Today

fluttering with

gentleness

to each person she

touched.

 

He was pigeon

dependent upon

charity

from someone else’s

feeding.

 

She was hawk

 today

scouring the

surface

to take what she

could.

 

He was falcon

today

soaring higher with

grace

for each obstacle he

overcame.

 

She was peacock

today

showing pride

 to

every member of her

team.

 

He was toucan

today

confidant in

every

motion he made to

survive.

 

She was owl

tonight

keeping watch

over

her loved ones in

darkness.

 

He was bat

tonight

hunting in

darkness

to feed his

family.

 

Every day

every night

we fly

through life

some are

givers

some are

takers

let us not be

destroyers

achievers and

makers.

 

~Miguel
