Silently Cheering

I stood,

Waiting on life.

Watching the birds

So high

Up there.

I found myself silently cheering

For that one

Who glided without so much as a flicker

Of his wing.

Go.  Go.  Go.

As far as you can.

I encouraged.

I hoped

He looked down upon me,

And you,

And encouraged.

Above my head. Back to earth.








As I stood in a parking lot waiting for my husband.

I hope.
