Mosaic Sonnet I - MARIA
Wind sweeps the azure world; my wings, cloud-white,
Sway down, soft feather-touch enfolding you,
Unseen; protection frail yet strong, like light
That overflows within a sky of blue.
Open your eyes, forget the dream of night;
Breathe fragrance in the wind that stirs the air,
Feel the sun's warmth, behind closed eyelids bright;
Open your mind, and see beyond despair.
Though straight the path, its end is out of sight:
The boundless future of tomorrow's sky
Is opened only by the key of flight.
Spread out your unseen wings; and without fear
Take your first step into the windy height;
Forever, in this azure sky, I'm near.
