"I went into the woods because I wanted to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived."

    I wrote Heart a letter yesterday

Walking With Wings

FREE WRITING

It didn't matter that he would fall; plummet to peaceful waters
at a velocity that would harden the sea to cement.
I wanted to defy the earth in a way only a bird could;
soaring over callous faces carved into the sides of mountains, 
my head held with prideful grace, as I whistle by in tenacious nonchalance. 

The mountains respectfully riposte, "Your wings were made for the skies,...
