Creatures of Air

We are creatures of air
an element essential to survival
and thus a buoyant feel
arises that awakens us to life

an energy that must ascend
and in its motion
carry all the dross
of incongruity away

Small, a bird in flight
that sings of higher, wider views
than mind alone can e'er achieve
in its enclosures

and joy becomes
a silent hum
as, effortless
we glide
on currents yet invisible
to mortal eye
