Flying –

racing upwards towards infinity

endlessly reaching heavenward – hopefully.

Flying –

stretching wings wide and gliding

effortlessly moving farther away – growing.

Flying –

gaining altitude and swiftness

even as they stumble in weakness – testing.

Flying –

away from us and their childhood

looking back briefly to reassure –  soaring.

Flying –

into their lives lifted by wind of pride

moving toward what is sure to be – amazing.
