Flight of Fancy




 Flight of Fancy


 

Fragile footprints, dainty, delicate

ascend the steps one at a time;

a puzzle I ponder

since flight would be so much faster.



Possibly, an exercise in survival – 

a skill at which they excel.

(Perhaps, scouring each stair

for some morsel of food?  Or

foiling a predator, perchance,

with their unpredictable prance?)

 At the top, their feet fashion erratic motifs –

scuff, spin, swirl, slide – and I jettison logic,

fancy them dancing.
