Bending Air Poem

In, Bending Air Poem,” I got lost for 3 1/2 years. When you lose people in your life. It’s easy to get lost. To fly through a smothering sky of white.

In, Bending Air Poem, To lose sight of directional, not knowing where you’ve been. It’s hard to pick up the pieces of yesterday and put everything just the way it was. You can’t; nothing is the same anymore.  But in time, you find YOURSELF once again. Like a new birth, you’re starting over, rethinking life, rethinking yourself alone for the first time in 11 years.

How can I speak any other way, but honestly? Many people shove it down in dark places, hide it, pretending they’re ok, when they are not. I know someone. He lost those same people as I did. But, he prefers hiding under a broken wing that will never mend.

Bending Air Poem

The path home begins with broken wings.
If I knew only how to fly— I could save myself.
I have fallen from branches many times.

Wing mending becomes a practice. A habit.

A baby bird learns at an early age.
Test flights from a nest.
A mother brings wet dirt pieces.

Wings that know how to work the wind— How to swoop and dive.

All the fallen feathers. I look within loneliness, within me.
I’ve gone away from my bones for what seems an eternity.
I’ve neglected my nest. I’ve not been home for a long spell.

Wings bring us home if we’re birdlike.

The path home has always been there, to fly, to me.
Home is my breathing, where I learn to step from the nest, stretch wings,
practice is my freedom, where I eat what fulfills my soul.

Wet dirt pieces come to the happiness of flight in the release.

Now I bend air. Bend words that take flight across fluttering pages.
