Waiting for opportunities
for the wind to carry you;
You being the outstretched
wings of a hawk. Its feathered resistance
riding the updrafts higher and higher.
Inscribing invisible ovals into the air,
traceless in a transparent sky.
You being the silken, feathery fibers
of the milkweed seed,
toward a new horizon,
to wait over winter
for promised germination,
hoping for conditions that will allow
You being the patient person
waiting for your life to become
what it is meant to be;
richer than it is,
soaring to new a vision,
growing with inspiration
from the Spirit within.
