flight...a poem

Hymns heard in winds
Drifting thoughts and hair
Maps in stars not read
Somehow became lost
Feet dragging soul along
With ghosts trailing behind
Are they seen in windows
As she walks by alone
Is a hand on her shoulder
Her beauty, her charm
Envelopes like incense
With palms over cheeks
She dares to cry at last
So strong for too long
Shoulders hunched over
Like mountains behind
She loves tigers and bears
But wishes for wings
Souring with eyes closed
Against sun and sky
She finally takes flight
