to fly

Michelle Hardt Thompson 

whence from the racked brain besought
mid billows seeping, silence caught
a mellow heartfelt ode to sing
betwixt the raging harness sought

a crumpled reign amiss true shade
without contextual thoughts arrayed
unbeknownst which wrought a happy end
submission leaning toward the grade

until alas alarmed crusade
a soaring windy plight enrage
blithering natural common grooves
soaring freeborn alas and smooth
craving neurotic carefree moves
laden awaken and hence betrayed
