A Bird’s Eye View

It’s a bird’s perspective I envy –
the ability to perch up high,
balanced no matter the weather,
unaffected by the drama below –
I shall never know such calm,
being afraid of heights.

(For Reena’s Exploration challenge: perspective.)

  1. This is everything a poem should be, a clear image, a strong metaphor and it can be read over and over without losing impact. Really like it!
    (I’m now going to do something I never do, because it would irritate me if someone did it to me, so tell me to bugger off and I’ll understand…but would it be even stronger if you changed “being afraid of heights” to “I’m afraid of heights”…more of a declaration.)
