FFfTPP: Sky Is My Meadow

28 Apr

I had waited years for this day.
Watching the sky since I was a kid.
Dreaming of flying up there
with all the pilots
and cutting the clouds in half,
sitting in the beautiful,
powerful machine.

This day is all mine.
Today I will be one of them,
of that dreamy pilots,
brave and fearless bird.
I shall never be afraid,
for sky is my meadow,
where I belong.

    “Sky is my meadow…” What a beautiful line! I’ve never flown as a pilot, but this sounds like something they’d understand very well. Lovely poem!

    It’s so nice that his dream has come true and he will get the opportunity to actually feel what he has imagined for so long. Wonderful poem.

    Couldn’t agree with Amy more – ‘the sky is my meadow’ – what a cracking line and image! A very lovely poem full of yearning and great imagery – nicely done
