The other day,
I wanted to capture
these clouds as they danced
above the treetops.
Only later,
when I uploaded the image,
did I notice
the beautiful bird
that flew into the shot
at just the right moment.

I dream of flying like that,
soaring through the sky,
hang-gliding on a whim.
But if all it takes
is spreading my wings,
maybe it’s not
as impossible as it seems.

(Welcome to all the beautiful people
who have found your way here
