On the wings of friendship

Intending to see what he should,
He set sail on a wing to the sun.
She was a sparrow counted
By the hand of God, set soaring and falling
In turbulent skies, wind burnt and singing,
“Arise, arise, we will rise above this.
The earth she is falling away.
Arise; arise to the face of God,
Through the night to the dawn and out past the sun;
Past the circle of dawns always falling,
And setting our watches to sleep in the dark.
We will rise; arise. There the air holds no poison,
There we’ll breathe no more lies.
Let us glide, the earth she is falling;
Let us rest, she is fading.
She has died.

We arise to the morning-forever.
Our eyes, they are brightened.
The breeze, it is gentle.
His face, it is steady,
Counts us in His sky.
Arise; arise, the earth it has fallen away.”

Intending to see what he should,
He set sail on her wing to the Son.
She was a sparrow counted
By the hand of God; and just one sparrow
set him soaring to the hand of God.

Very intrigueing writing. It's unique perspective is a kind of song in itself. We are all like sparrows in God's hand.

Lovely!

A perspective I would not have thought of and admire how you can do this in poetry.

Elequent! Well done. I felt peaceful as I read this. Thanks for sharing.

The images are powerful but I had a bit of trouble discerning your complete meaning. Your poetry is lovely.
