#Maydays Prompt – Flying without Wings


Today’s #maydays prompt may your character take a flight, a fall or a leap (real or metaphorical).

It wasn’t a matter of taking to the skies

But one of confidence and belief

Of knowing you could fly

Achieve the height

Most only dreamed of.

But it was never easy

Obstacles and roadblocks

Littered your path

As though one success

Led to another.

I marvelled in your perseverance

You never gave up

You believed in me

You trusted in us

You let me hold your hand

As you soared high

Above the scaremonger’s clouds.

  1. With perseverance we can fly or at least keep from being dragged along the ground. 💙

  2. Sensitive ode to the strength of companionship, friendship, love, and trust. Most people never experience how free and joyful it must feel to fly with just the touch of a hand.

  3. I don’t know how you do it, Michael–take a simple prompt and turn it into a beautiful poem, like this one. I love it. 🙂
    I’m sorry I haven’t stopped by lately…have been so busy getting my manuscript ready for my editor, among other things.
    Have a wonderful week, my friend. 🙂

    Michael, this is wonderful. It flows so beautifully, I love how it rises and falls like a flight too. Well done and thank you for taking part. I love the variety of posts you create each day. KL ❤
