The Second Part of Life

The second part of life —

face to face with the height...

awkward movements —

the wings are glued together.


then gathering the courage

to catch the wind,

favor light, find a new balance,

trust the wings again,


and on an exhale

aligning yourself with the center,

with the moment when

all pieces fall into place


make a big leap forward.
