Bird Girl

Some say I may just be
Stretching my wings.
“Oh don’t worry, she’s just
Stretching her wings.

Learning to fly is a phenomenon one must master. Beautiful words.
Susan How wonderful is this! You have control over your destiny. I loved the imagery. Karin Anderson

I thought I might have have read it once. I checked and yes I did. But still, the wit you brought in here continues to draw my wonder. There is such a tenacious grasp of a Goldner kind that penetrates every aspect of disguised human nature.

I have a daughter who is about your age and she is a very talented artist who had grown tired of her art. I was worried by some of her latest interests in that none of them seemed to be in the direction of a career. I asked her what she wanted to do with her life and she answered, 'Dad, What will happen tomorrow? ' I shut up. Because as you know, none of us know. Stretch your wings and learn to fly because the truth is.... you will also need to know how to land and one better, how to crash land. You will go far as a writer....if that is what you want.

I want you to fly, write poems, sing songs, break hearts, find your muse, and Dear Sus, I trust you in all these things. Uriah

A great poem indeed. Easily understood but it flirts the heart. Close to the heart, that is. It's like a scene of a favorite movie one does not forget.

'an explosion inside, one of the best of its kind...' it's that very same explosion that sent me on a cross country journey of self exploration just 4 months ago. life without such learning is pointless. I heart this poem.

Why waste the glory that could be this life? Why shouldn't you soar to the limits of what you have in you? Forget those who would confine you to normality, who would break your wings if they could get away with it. You don't have to take them seriously. Inhibition is the enemy. All this you know already. Keep flying.

You're being too modest. Judging from this piece, I'd say you're actually soaring. You are a most gifted artist and it's readily evident. Keep soaring.

Hi Sus, I've loved your poems for very long, even if I have never said it. BWF.

It's nice. Works. I quickly read through a few of yours. You have a strong mind and consciousness. Will try to read more, though my time's very limited these days. Thank you for your comment about mine yesterday.
