Overhead the birds are calling, their cries seeming to fill the air. As I watch, they rise, flinging their bodies against the sky, intent upon the moment, spinning and turning like embers or smoke upon the air. I envy them, this life of theirs, the way they live so free of themselves, they are without past, without future, an exaltation of life beating in so many parts, rising up into the infinity of space. Watching them I find I want to weep, and yet I have no tear. ~James Bradley
Kathy's prompt for Song-ography this week is "I Want to Break Free"...my week has been so busy that I had to choose an image to share from my iPhone. I haven't had my real camera out very much, but I've had my iPhone with me on some walks, which I've done a lot of with this gorgeous weather we're having in Virginia.
I captured this image of a heron sunning his wings out on the lake, and it made me want to trade places with him for a little while. I think it would be so nice to feel the sun on my wings, to hear the gentle lapping of the water all around me, with no distractions...and to know that at any moment I could lift off and fly to the sky on an adventure, swooping amidst the clouds. I would love that feeling of freedom, and also that aerial view of the lake from up above. Wouldn't that be awesome? I sure think so.
I used to have dreams as a kid that I was flying, and they were so vivid and real. I was always so sad when I woke up and realized it was just a dream. I don't have the flying dreams as an adult...I wonder why that is? I wish I did, because I'd like to experience that feeling again, if only for a moment!
