Taking Flight

as a fledgling unfolding wings
flapping, waiting, while praying for grace.
building for the leap of faith confidence, strength.

the best lessons are revisited,
learned on deeper levels,
keeping the heart open in new ways each day.

leaving the South, headed NE
dreading getting on the plane,
flying solo in so many ways.

decisions weighing down
shaking off the waters
freeing the feathers for flight.

a return to faith in the unseen,
knowing the trials and tribulations
have a deeper reason, one day to be seen.

taking a breath, letting it go,
taking a leap, the wind carries me
effortlessly as a dandelion seed.

yes, peacocks do fly! they are NOT chickens =)

while i love traveling, motion sickness goes with me. so flying solo leaves me feeling vulnerable. may the flights be gentle in all ways! overall, i’m looking forward to learning more about my trade as well as seeing friends new and old.

upon my return home, i discovered yesterday, i’ll need to find a new place to call home at the end of my lease. an unexpected series of expenses and hassles when i had planned to stay. i have grown to enjoy my space, and it’s time to move on to greener pastures! 

hope spring is doing well by everyone!

    1. Ken, I wanted to let you know I appreciate your message and can’t figure out why they both went into spam folder on my blog. I loved the trip down memory lane you shared. Have a great day, Rita

      1. Rita, I’m glad you got them, I wasn’t sure what I did wrong, thought they were lost to cyberspace. Love your blog. Tiffany introduced me to WP and i’m having a blast discovering all of these kindred spirits.

      2. I don’t know either but I wanted you to know I finally retrieved it. Good to meet you, Ken.

        It is a blast here and the people are absolutely wonderful. So, let’s get back to that wonderful time known as 1972! Whadda great time we grew up in, huh?
