flight of dreams
the weight of longing

flight of dreams
were they to avoid sky
could they still fly

for good ole days

in muted shades
hush you  rainbows carrying

If only everybody would act sensibly when a crisis such as Covid threatens. Sadly there will always be those that ignore the danger and put their own and others lives at risk.

Rosemary Nissen-Wade said...

Sensible child! And sensible grandmother too, obviously, for encouraging this.

"flight of dreams / were they to avoid sky / could they still fly" -- good question. If our dreams avoid flight, we are sadly grounded.

C. Sandlin said...

This -- both of these -- are beautiful.

I liked both your poems. The good old days shall come again. We shall be able to visit our loved ones without makes and go on with our dreams.

Sounds like a sweet visit.

JadeLi said...

Glad your granddaughter can visit you and like the top collage.

Beautiful troiku. Yours last week inspired me to write one also.

Jim said...

Again pretty cards, Gillena. I like your 'flying' poem and how you worked it in with the vaccine items. Mine was a child wishing to fly, to fly away.
