With wings of a bird

She flew towards the heavens

Outstretched arms spanning the radiant sky

Her spirit miraculously leavened

Eagles astonished, as she passed them by.

Her arms were as light as feathers

Suspending her weightless form

As she reached out and touched the clouds

Her tears became the raindrops of the rising storm.

The water fell to Earth and filled the glorious oceans

As her eyes followed the path of the burning sun

Its brightness and intensity expressed within her eyes

As the earth on its axis spun…

Circling the world she soon discovered

Places she had never before known

The wealth of so many and the desperation of others

So many people, some truly alone

The borders of the countries from that height were faded

Nothing to show the boundaries because the globe was so vast

People and animals sometimes left to die, unaided

In a world running out of time and resources fast

Traveling through the outer layer of the earths orbit

She encountered space with the awe of a child

As far as the eye could see, she peered intently

A youthful heart opened and curiously beguiled

Stars glistened with an ancient distinction

All sorts of emotion showed on her face

She saw how unimportant mans existence had become

Simply, a lost and forgotten cause – the human race

In a universe so great she pondered

What would it be like to see it all?

Behind her the earth turned round and round

A giant multicolored sphere – it looked as small as child’s ball

Corporal life would go on as usual

But the soaring spirit would see beyond

A small living cell among the many

Becoming like a tadpole in a very large pond.
