Lift Off

Become again the albatross
Wings spread, but grounded

Some will stand, stunned
Warmed and smiling
‘Neath the light reflecting
Safely from your feathers

Others will stare, studying
Threatened and deciding
Comfort zones, they
Too far from your glory

Such allegorical drag!
Let it be your lift

Expectant

…and reflections, tending to reveal truths
Could scare the daylights out of you at times
Or, cause you to walk away angry, and in denial
Today, though, a blessing
I saw myself in the mirrors of another, and fell
Now, on my knees, expectant
With blessings, indeed
