An endless flight of horrifying frights

I close my eyes and see

darkness disguised under shadows bend

in hope that light might sail again

and save this frightened, feathered friend.

No lips can speak, nor eyes can see

what touches sacred heart

for in this world and might apart

lays a secret we must keep.

No easy task, I might add

may ever come our way

but truth be told,

as land unfolds beneath my barren feet,

I do not mind, one bit at all

cause I was born of sky and sea.
