Aspire to Ascend

Oh, to soar above the clouds
for just one day –
free-floating, empowered…

What perspective would flight reveal –
the illusion that is civilization?
the fragility of our walls?

Still, let us aspire to ascend…
without regard for the fall…

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. The bad news is you’re falling through the air, nothing to hang on to, no parachute. The good news is, there’s no ground. πŸ™
