From Another​ World

You do not belong to this world,
Or to any celestial planet beaconing life,
Nor to the charm of any dancing eyes,
Or to any belief in some disguise.

Osprey’s Maiden Flight

A young osprey taking its maiden flight,
Training to fly above the ocean before winter arrives,
The grit in her eyes is a beauty to engage,
The tender feathers fluttering with rage.

She falters many times,
Often she falls,
Despite all odds,
she didn’t lose hope.

For no storm can besiege her,
no adversity can impede her flight.
