Wingwalker

Aerialistic circus flights of fancy filled,
Above the tops of swaying tree’s, prophecy fullfilled
O’er rural fields, a gone by day
Barnstormers delight is lost in the modern rays
Barrel rolls stir the heights with a passion proud,
their loop-d-loops, are for the crowd, to
Bring em’ home

But this was nothing compared to those
That dared defy the wind,
way above, their deeds, a baptism

Step outside and breathe the air, a purity like none
Breathe in deep every cloud, Wing-Walkers, Oh, what tales, what tales you’ve spun
Away with ease, embracing breeze, not for applause, not for the crowd, but simply cause, to bring it home

The sky is a field, a place
Where it’s easy to lose one’s self,
It’s landscape’s wide, ethereal, peace and calm
You’re sense of time lingers long and the space is divine,
Always diminishing the reasons why, you left your home

In the sky, Heaven is close for the touch
In an arena, that is free, an indescribable love
Unintended is the aim, for there are no plans
Without plan you stand and play the role, your command
You play your part, and
This takes you home

Walker’s weaved, mesmerized, as the impossibility sings
Walkers brought to life, the dreams of both, commoners and kings
Carving paths out through the sky
Dancing gales caressing thighs
Balance becomes a part of you, becomes home, a part of you

Wing Walkers, Barnstormers, Aerobats
Once gave promise to a world when it sorely lacked
And today, here and now, I stare to the sky,
And pray, that again, a walkers will walk the planes for our time
And give us the reasons why
