wings of change flapping

the 12 given words:
wings neared lake drift glided water surface 
rippling, arc composed settled nest

wings of change flapping
as they neared the lake
the drift grew intense upon returning
they glided forcefully instead

skimmed the water surface
rippling the calmness of the morning
a familiar technique in place
forming an arc before diving in

composed in attitude searching
in the clear expanse of the reservoir
settled safely in the nest having
taken their first tryout wanting more

MMT's the Whirligig #307


  1. A very apt title for today's circumstances.
    Wonderful verse Hank.
    Take care.

  2. Each creature has its own talent but flying does make us really jealous!

  3. We always want more of what we are successful at, don't we? Thanks for joining in this week's Whirligig!
