Glorious Day, Glorious Me

I match my gait to the beat of my buds,

a dance in my step, arms raise up

like wings against the spring wind:

I become invincible (once again).


The trees seem to bow before me as I pass;

no selfies, only Nature do I photograph,

except when I think of capturing my shadow—

wind-whipped, flying, part human, part eagle.


Of course, a heart-shaped, hot-air-balloon cloud floats by

to widen my smile with symbolism, a recognized sign.

Peace and harmony and mutual respect

are the consistent qualities of my nature relationship.


Yesterday’s lows give way to today’s highs

as I leave my shadow to continue on

and ascend to the sky for a time…
