Topic: Pigs Might Fly (10/31/13)

TITLE: It Was a Good Day

Two perspectives
In one mind
Battle for control…

Sheets of clouds darken the morning
heavy with burden
of a day
short on hours
before the first one passes;
I must burrow under my blanket
And ignore time.

***

Sleep soothes my inner core
as the clouds blanket the sun
and ease me into the day
with the gentle song of a robin;
Listen to the flute ensemble.

***
Rather, fill my ears with cotton;
The robins are too happy
For six AM.

***
Ahhh, feel the sun’s warmth;
She has shed her quilt too,
And I am ready.

***
Ahhh, draw the black drapes—
I am not.

***
But today could be the day
To soar to the moon,
To be the first
To touch what only
God has touched before.

***
When pigs fly!
***
They might.

***
What if I fail?

***
You have been called
To open a door to
The heavens,
Let the world
View a closer glimpse
Of His creation;
Just trust in Him
And go.

***
What if the dream
Is impossible?

***
Nothing is
Just one step
Proves it.

July 16, 1969 1:32 PM…
Apollo 11 defied gravity
At take-off…
Four days later, it landed
And mountains moved.

I enjoyed this deep and introspective poem.

God Bless~

I enjoyed your poem of two perspectives, the positive and optimistic, and the negative and pessimistic. It alludes well to what might never have been achieved if optimism didn't win out - eg the moon landing. Well written.
