Goose Display

by Jem Croucher
Heard them first a-honking, a crescendo from the West
before the 'V' right overhead, formation at its best
A goose display of perfect flight for us there in the field
as we walked Obi in the rain deep in the Sussex Weald
And it was quite magnificent, it made us laugh aloud
full of the joie de vivre that sings and make the heart feel proud

And high above I climb into the blue
from down below from whence I flew
admiring the unspoilt view
white clouds above me now

My wingspan wide I'll hover there
spiralling down without a care
humans they'd be best aware
as they below me bow

My name is Gull and I am proud
synonymous my cry aloud
heard above the throng and crowd
my presence to endow

acres on the palm
when fears grow thin
flights on a rainbow
of circular time

Oh to slip into the sky, to soar and dance and tumble
Murmurate, swoop and stoop
Twisting twining the wind to my joy

Such a Tiny Thing

by Anita Lubesh


Sing little bird,
fly overhead,
rest in the trees’
wavering breeze.
Lift the curtain high at dawn
let the flickering candles yawn.

waiting for our flight
We’re feeling quite excited
just like we were last night

When swans fly

by Jem Croucher


When swans fly it is with grace
sustained with effort there
Slender necks streamlined in flight
elite and debonair

As a seagull

by Jem Croucher


As a seagull I flew inland from the sea
Up in a yellow-tinged sky
Looking down with the freedom I commanded in flight
as I swooped and I soared up on high

Curved Flights

by Venkat


This flesh, I hold no more
These bones, hold me no more
This blood, I feel no more
This heart, feels me no more
This mind, I keep no more
These thoughts, keep me no more

Butterflies on the mallow
deep pink and white
Captured on camera
there in mid-flight
It’s a beautiful thing
in my garden to see
although brief and short-lived
their longevity

She Gull

by tjtherien

She gull, she gull, fly far away
Togetherness is a one-night stay
And tomorrow is just an extension of today…
She gull, she gull, be free, take flight
Deep into the dark and dreamy night
if you need a candle I will be your light…
