Magpie #71 Fly Free


Endeavor, Lino Tagliapietra, Columbus Museum of Art



What the earth
Unbound
The sky
Unwound
Her elemental colours
Unfurled
Her new colourful banner wings

High into the air
She could Fly Free
Gaia's topsy-turvy gyrations
Keep proximity grounded
Gravity soon free fall away
always
To Capture
distant patterns of the lost echo
of a thousand flapping flags
winging it

all the while
a lone lonely bird
encircled our encampment thrice
then flew wildly past
a fury of frantic frenzy
to the opening to the north

and all those below
whose names were called to come
were bound on this home bound train
to find the Great Beyond
always right here
and now
Fly Free!

  3. Strains of Oh Canada mix
    well with the rock hit
    White Bird, and we are
    thankful for such beautiful
    neighbors.
