We learned how to fly…

“It’s dark because you are trying too hard. Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly. Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply. Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them.”
― Aldous Huxley , Island

I made a vow to go down paths
where magic lights the way,
to stop and smell the flowers,
whether my mood be bright or grey…

to feel the glow of human breath
and touch diaphanous skies,
to walk lightly my darling,
to look into your eyes,
to wonder how you got so lovely
as you quietly grew,
we wished upon the magic
in whatever we’d been through…

and when our wings took shape
we learned how to fly,
we never needed a pardon
not even when we died…

just to float on seas of cosmic jewels
and count the crystal stars,
to bring what really matters
and appreciate who we are…

to forget the baggage that weighed us down,
we left it at the gate,
to speak in the tongues of all humankind
as we contemplate…

the stillness of the mornings,
the air in the afternoons,
the radiance of the setting sun,
and the rising of the moon…

from swamps of waterlilies
we grew out of the mud
and from this suffocation,
we knew we’d had enough…

but lightly my darling let’s fly back to the sun,
be adorned by the angels
and with light become one….



I am an unknown introvert who desires to touch the world with a little bit of magic...
