Flying High

“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.” ― Oscar Wilde

Thursdays are usually
quite ordinary
with not much happening.
They’re not the beginning
and they’re not the end,
they’re the in-between
we must face
with or without grace.
For, perhaps not spectacular,
that’s where life flows
like an eagle
over breathtaking scenery,
where the mountains freely grow
clothed in the rising sun,
dancing to the morning air
calling for our bare footsteps.
Where trees hunger
for our touch like needy pets
and birds playfully urge us
to play and fly high like a kite.
How can I not wake up
to this ordinary day,
be inspired and
make it a wondrous moment.
After all, every day is a pearl
in the necklace of our life
we must proudly wear,
day in and day out.
