One Year Ago Today


...When I think of heaven

Deliver me in a black-winged bird

I think of dying

Lay me down in a field of flame and heather

Render up my body into the burning heart of God

In the belly of a black-winged bird...

Despite their tragic end, I envy them. At least once in their lives, they were able to rise above the blue into the black and live the unique experience of looking down at the Earth from the immediate beyond, free of the nagging calls of gravity that tie the rest of us to ground, and for a fleeting moment, move beyond the human condition.
