Magpie Tales-Flying Lessons

red golashes
race up the hill
in the fresh snow
frosty breaths
hang in the air
like runners on a sled 
suspended on the edge
of the world
holding on
letting go
without fear
rushing headlong
into the arms
of life

C.M. Jackson 2010

This is a Magpie Tale----fly here for more!

This is really great! What a great take on what we all do: Live---and how it is not always certain but filled with the unknown. "race up the hill"---"suspended on the edge of the world"---holding on then letting go"----incredible feelings and thoughts in so few words.

Oh, I loved this! It really captured the experience and what a perfect ending....
"rushing headlong
into the arms
of life"

Your poems is lovely, and
brimming with terrific
energy, and your lines
/runners on a sled/
suspended on the edge
of the world/ reminds us
that we are all sledders
if we can be brave enough
to let loose and fly.
