"I Thought Of Wings" by Joe DiMino

I thought of wings—

Contours and variations;

Wanting lift of my own sort
A persistent rising in me…

Thought of fanning features
And size—
Agreeing that legs and feet
Were not enough,
Wise not to settle
Without the skies—

Could it all be by chance?—
To launch from
Heavily weighted earth
And upon the air glide—
At times seeming to dance

Above my sinking feeling,
Here, at the utmost bottom,
Flight is more appealing—

I thought of wrong
And the Brothers, Wright—

I thought of Edison and Light—

I thought of will
And how my heart
Would not stand still
The times it should have stopped
When broken….
