Flying High | Ami (Gypsie) Offenbacher-Ferris

To fly up high in the sky like a kite 

would be so very sublime 

.

Higher and higher I would go until barely my tail would show 

.

Up into a sky so blue leaving the land far below within fluffy white clouds above 

.

And kites of every size like me

waiting patiently to be set free

Early Tulips | Ami (Gypsie) Offenbacher-Ferris

quiet laughter whirred the mists

tips of early blooming tulips 

shouldered through the 

blur of old snow drifts

stretched to touch the dawn

returning to turn off

the cold weather months

and welcome once again 

Spring!

Rat-a-Tat-Tat-Tat | Ami (Gypsie) Offenbacher-Ferris

Rat-a-Tat-Tat-Tat – The woodpecker taps spring is come again along the flowing streams of melted snow 

Fun has just begun for one and for all crowed the big black crow

.

Rat-a-Tat-Tat-Tat – Serenaded the 

melodiously tiny little red tailed woodpecker as warm air tickled his 

feathers and soothed his poor sore aching beak

Metamorphosis | Ami (Gypsie) Offenbacher-Ferris

One step, two step, three and more

Takes us through that hidden door

How am I supposed to fly?

Legs and body no wings have I

.

Oblivion waits beyond that portal

Awake or asleep you’ll become immortal

Don’t hesitate with wings unfurled

Release them now behold the world
