I Will Fly … High!
We (all of us) are the compilation of our journey through life – our struggles, our sorrows, our joys and successes.
Birds fly. They, with glorious feathered wings, descend into the heavens to soar high above the sky – ennobled through their freedom of flying.
We humans are earthbound it seems, forever to have our feet on the earth of the ground.
But is this a truth? Are we? After all we are creatures of our own making. Do we not control our destinies, chose the direction we would follow?
Perhaps … if we so desire … we can set free our imaginations, our dreams and we too can fly.
Fly today my friends, fly high…touch the sky!
To Touch the Sky
I would fly
if I could,
I might close my eyes,
spreading arms open wide
and rise up
touch the sky.
And now that I think on it
a simply thing – this flying.
Today, I believe,
I will fly.
Have a great day!

Lovely poem and post, Penny! ♥
Thank you Lauren and for stopping by dear friend. Have not forgotten you, setting up a new schedule so I have time to visit my excellent online friends! 🙂 xo
No worries, Penny! I’m juggling, too, and it’s crazy! 🙂 xox
This is lovely Penny 🙂
Thank you, my friend! 🙂
A very uplifting post. Perchance, is the first photo one of your very own?
Don’t I wish. It came from one of the free online photo morgues and sometimes at a few of this places the photographer doesn’t represent his or herself very well so you end up with no one to credit except a jpeg, without a link to anything! 😦
Thank you Celestine. It can be so easy to forget this sometimes! 🙂
I Can Fly and Touch The Sky! beautiful word my friend Have nice day !
Hello Stefan, thank you dear friend. xx
Meaningfully beautiful, Penny 🙂
Hi Celestine, thank you my friend! 🙂

Well that was silly of me! Not something I do very often Yoshiko. I must have been thinking of Celestine when I replied to you, I am very sorry … please excuse me! 🙂 xx
No worries, Penny, you are excused 🙂
Very uplifting Penny. 🙂
Hello emmy. Thank you very much. Give that big ol’ elephant a huge hug from me, will you! 🙂
Will do as soon as I see him. 🙂
Sometimes I really think I could fly.
That’s when I realize that it’s time to ease off on the good cheer!
xx 🙂 🙂 xx
Yes, but what a way to fly, Rosy (not that I recommend it of course!). Wheeeeee! 🙂 xo
Ah, we do fly, Penny, don’t we?!!! 🙂 xxxxxxxxxx
Beautifully written, as always.

Great poem, Penny. Love the photos, especially that first one. 🙂
Thank you Paulette. Yes me too. The first one is magnificent isn’t it! 🙂
Reach the sky and feel there is no limit….. feel free……. yay!
Always dearest friend. Reach for it, nothing stopping us but a few self doubts! double yay Ute, hope your week began well for you!
Yes our limiting beliefs… the sky has no limits… Thanks Penny, I have a good week so far, hope you are enjoying yours as much too! That makes two smiling happy people!
“if man were meant to fly, he would have been born at the end of a runway” hehe sorry, couldn’t resist.
I love birds. I often stand on my front or rear balcony watching them. Either the way they glide, the way they flap their wings, the way they land. Especially when they land on the cliffs. So graceful. They are a wonder to behold.
Thank you for sharing this Penny
Yeah, my runway is right outside always ready and waiting! lol. You are lucky that they can be so close to you. I wasn’t able to comment but I did see the bird photo you took on the 8th. Just wonderful Alastair! xx
Thank you Penny. :-)I know there are time constraints for a lot of people now. Research for me stops me visiting as many blogs as I want to. Sometimes I use photos I have taken in previous days as I don’t have time to take photos.
If I could, I would spend all of time bird watching.
Hello Stefan, thank you dear friend! xx
