We take to the air,
in fits of ecstasy, unprovoked,
gleaned form a revelation,
an opening of the mind,
perhaps a chance meeting with an old friend,
a deep conversation,
viewing a piece of art that touches the soul,
or having a heron take off in full view!
Our flight extends to the beginning of the realization we have taken off at all.
when the thinking mind grasps us,
makes the experience conscious,
back to earth,
to resume whatever we were doing.
for having the air lift us at all.
