WIFIS: Before I Knew I Could Fly

February 16, 2009

dandelion

before i knew i could fly
a small part of me was ready.
too small to be recognized
as what i’d ultimately be
still,
i waited.

before I knew I could fly
i waited for my wind
exhaled from the unknown
i knew even then that
beneath the stillness of the atmosphere
i could hear the whisper that would free me
the whistle that would lift me
the sound of freedom
traveling a million miles
to tell me

that it’s finally time
to fly.
