FISH OUT OF WATER

Fish out of Water

picture this fledgling
perched, prepared for flight,
puzzled by the shade roosting
on her shoulder; in over her head and
can’t fathom why she’s weighted down,
coming apart, falling out when she should be
linked in; all atwitter over expectations; seeing
clearly aloft, wide open sky – inviting, enticing,
befuddled still, by fear of flying
