Oh to Soar
Poetry By John Cannon

Oh to soar
like the broad-winged birds,
 
To feel
that amazing surge and lift
 
as the thermals rise
and capture me
in their tender strong arms
 
bearing me higher
and higher
 
up above
the highest mountains,
 
Floating, gliding
riding up
 
until every earthly thought
is a tiny speck
 
lost
in the soft folds
 
of the endless
lush green carpet
below.
