An ABC poem

Featured this week in Poet’s Corner and shared with dVerse


All eagles glide

Bound only by hope

Certified souls in flight

Driven by the wind

Emanating life

Feathers floating on thermals

Gaping canyon chasms

Hang below talons

Infinite skies of turquoise

Jagged rocks and ridges

Knotted pinion trees

Latching softly on edges

Muted exultation

Navigating our senses

Oozing sweet silence

Promising peace

Quilted in the clouds

Right in front of our eyes

Soaring vicariously

Timeless and true

Unanchored by guilt

Visions of heaven

Weightless and empty

Xcept for our hearts

Yes, our hearts

Zigzagging in the wind.

  1. very nice….a lot of times with the ABC poems they can come across so disjointed…but i like how yours flowed…i like the freedom of being unanchored by guilt as well…smiles.

  2. A to z at your sea, nicely done as free you are under your sun

  3. I like the photo and eagle theme…felt like I was gliding, soaring with them above the canyon.

  4. there are phrases in here enough for a dozen sonnets.
    The splendiferous landscape hanging from the talons of the birds, will be an abiding image

    • Hi aprille, it was a challenge to follow the alphabet and still keep the flow. I wasn’t happy with the amount of phrases running on, but decided not to alter it in the end. Thanks for dropping in. πŸ™‚

  5. The rhythm is inspiring. πŸ™‚

  6. Beautiful,both the poem and the photo. This is reflective of your recent weather comment on Bucket List Publications πŸ™‚

    • Thanks Lesley! I love the southwest because of the sunny skies and rock formations. I took this photo at Dead Horse Point, Utah, still one of my most favourite places on earth.
      Thanks for dropping in. πŸ™‚

  7. Thank you, Melanie. πŸ™‚
