From Beyond the Clouds



Earthbound: as you descend the skies
Saying goodbye to the heights
The vast blue
Would be the first to vanish
Where the dreams burgeon and blooms
Into a harvest.


Gliding gracefully
Across the valleys and over the bridges
At a height where birds cannot reach
Endless voyages
To your home; Oblivious of impending dangers
Across the lofty, distant rugged mountain slopes.


Stone paths
Stone roads
Stone houses
Stone temples.
Curious tourists
Contributing to the ruins of the mountain cities.


As the drums and trumpets fade away
The blue sky; an unfeeling witness
Neither the ear-splitting thunders
Nor the fury of the mountain-gods
Could stop you from riding the breeze
Carrying fish and meat; to slake the hunger of eyass.*

* eyass-A baby falcon is called an eyass.


**This poem is dedicated to The Peregrine Falcon which is the fastest animal on Earth; it is capable of achieving speeds of approximately 200 miles an hour in a vertical dive.
