If I Had Wings


If I Had Wings

This was going to be submitted to I Have Wings - Challenge, hosted by Midnight-Designed 
Although, it was finished in plenty of time, it turned out that there were submission limits, and the category was closed weeks before the finish date. [C'est la vie modern. But, it was an interesting challenge, especially as my first half dozen attempts didn’t pan out, as planned.]

Thanks to all the stock artists. Your efforts are always appreciated.

Many who study such things report that Flying Dreams “are one of the most common dreams.



If I Had Wings

If I had wings

          I would have hollow bones

          Lighter and more vulnerable

If I had wings

          My heart and lungs could pump

          Twice as much oxygen

If I had wings

          My eyes could see forever

          Past the horizon

And if I had wings

          I could fly up to the heavens

          Far above the world

If I had wings

          I might be an eagle soaring high above the mountains

          Looking over everything on the ground

If I had wings

          I might be a swan gliding over a cool clear glacial tarn

          Mirroring everything when the waters are still and calm

If I had wings

          I might be a canary in a cage in a mine

          Warning all my life if the air was healthy to breath

And if I had the wings of a canary in a cage

          I might dream of soaring above the mountains

          In the cool clean air as if I had the wings of an eagle
