to make a mage #3

#3: transformation

and there will be
a transformation

as a boy
to a man

man to mage

and yes
into a bird
to fly

underneath the heart
of a storm
of chaos and cloud

stark white
the gull
in a ray of sunlight

or no
no

the majesty
of eagle speck
circling
the wide blue sky

current warm
vortex

high
high

and higher

air riffling
a feathered being

this is worship
of a kind

halfway
to heaven

halfway
from the ground

    • I think that is part of why we get fascinated with magical creatures/beings, Liz. A deep felt yearning to be able to do these things.

      Makes them compelling. Glad you enjoyed the piece.
