At first, she was scared that the weight of her
wings and gravity would make it painful
to fly but her mother calmed her down.
Off she went flying over the mountains and
the sea discovering a new world which
was both beautiful and threatening.
With time she started to enjoy flying be it
alone or in a flock so much so that
waited to fly off each day everyday.

This is quite lovely. I love the themes of overcoming fear, and how something we could fear might actually be enjoyable. Really like the rhythm here as well. Such a beautifully penned piece. I thank you for sharing it.
Thanks Lucy :).
I imagine there’s a lot of truth in this interpretation.
Thanks Jane :). Oh yes there is :D.
I’m sure it’s like learning anything–there is a need to get past the fear. (K)
True that 🙂
They say inertia is the greatest force in the universe and I think why is the fear factor. Once you get past that, watch out. You made your poem fly with this message.
Thanks Jade :). Sure, inertia is definitely the greatest fear factor which when overcome can help get through any challenge :D.
You are welcome.
I can picture a sweet bird just learning how to go off on its own.
That’s amazing that you could picture that :).
