FLIGHT TO THE GODS
Swiftly to fly away
On wings through sky that way

  8. Your words wrap in and around the rite in a way that brinks to life that rising sage smoke.

  15. I love your little musing on write and rite. Lovely poem - the comparision between birds and smoke is great, and I guess we are all striving to reach the gods, whoever they are.
