On wings…. Up and away

“The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease forever to be able to do it.” ~ J. M. Barrie, Peter Pan.


Encountered this keen seagull following our boat cruising the Bosporous straits, Istanbul


Gravity grabs my feet

I feel unable to take flight

I imagine myself letting go

And like magic my spirits lift

It soars in the air, floats weightlessly

I see my body still on the ground, shackled

But my mind, my imagination is free

To fly, to observe and to savor

The beauty of the universe around me

  1. As I lay here, feeling the weight of the world

    I close my eyes and let my thoughts unfurl

    I imagine myself lifting off the ground

    My troubles and worries left far behind

    I soar through the air with the greatest of ease

    The wind in my hair, the sun on my face

    I am free to explore, to discover new places

    The world is my playground, my canvas to paint

    So I spread my wings and fly, fly away

    Leaving behind all my troubles and fears

    For in my imagination, I am free to be

    Anything I want, anywhere I please

    So I let go and fly, weightlessly

    Drifting on the breeze, soaring through the sky.
