Landing in a Storm

The hawk rarely plummets from the sky

The ladybug’s ungainly body still can fly

We click the buckle and trust, that so will I.

  1. Fran, not much excites me more than travel and discovering new adventures. And as much as I’ve traveled, I still – – still – – still get a slightly what if feeling every time the wheels leave the ground. It’s exciting, but it’s also a little unnerving. I’m with you, friend. Gorgeous photo!


  2. Fran, I echo Kim’s comment. Your poem is gorgeous. I love the hawk and ladybug imagery and the implications about faith both in nature and in engineering each line implies.


  3. YES! Flight itself seems to be a miracle of nature, and the fact that we can put those enormous tubes of metal up in the air will endlessly be amazing to me.
