Wind to My Wings

I want you to know how wonderful it is to fly.
Did you know that I have only just learned?
My wings grew some years ago,
And the great feathers have hardened
As I have lifted into the air,
Soared and climbed on winds of wonder,
And airy rivers of expanding mind.
But only now have I opened my wings wide
And swept with laughter and tears
Over the edge of my world and across the ocean.
There, far below and receding,
I see the security of my home,
Of work, and loved people I am kin with.
And here, in the wind and sky,
Above the Ocean of the Unknown,
Across the sea of Possibilities,
My wings carry me.
Your words are with me as the wind lifting me.
Your love is the current of air carrying me beyond myself.
