beginning flight

the crane took off –

awkwardly at first,

neck still curled in the scroll of standing,

wings beating hard against the invisible gravity of the earth

she gained air –

and then soared.

crane starting flight

reminding me,

awkward is eventually graceful,

 wings must go both up and down if i am to fly,

and the gravity of any situation can be overcome.
