We Take to the Air

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,
we fall
back to earth,
to resume whatever we were doing.
But lighter,
for having the air lift us at all.

This sounds like waking up from a dream that you've been soaring or running through the clouds and trying to hang onto that feeling after you awake. Beautiful photos.
