Oh to Soar
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.
