Read introduction

Sometimes the buffeting gets to be exhausting. It becomes necessary to remind ourselves that we are on a long, long journey, the destination is unclear and the stamina needed to keep flying is all that is required - until we arrive.

Albatross

The sad refrains,
Elegiac strains,
Music of the darkening
Edges of an age.

Long waves rolling,
Endless, timeless,
Toward an unseen shore
- far distant,
unheard.

And I,
Wings extended,
Coast the waves of air
Endlessly
Seeking,
Searching
For a place
To land,
To rest, to settle,
Draw in wings
And dreams,
And stand
In silent vigil
In peace,
Rest,
In love
Unchanging.

Yet

Another gale
Blows,
Another storm comes,
Whipping foam white
Wave caps
And buffeting aching
Wings
That still seek,
Still yearn.
