Poetry For Hera – Spread Wide

Spread Wide

I close my eyes to the beat
Beneath me his wings are spread
Spread beneath me
Spread wide
And we are off
My hair blowing
As his wings are spread beneath me

Her arms are wide
Heavy with burdens
A wry smile knowing
Knowing me
She hands me one of her burdens
Return this for me
And get yourself something nice
Followed up with another one of her knowing smiles
And a wicked comment about the sun

She leaves me flustered at her charm
Brown black curls pinned back
Prada sunglasses
Her proud nose
The wry smile knowing me so well

I close my eyes to the beat
Carrying the burden on spread wings
And wind my way back
To flying 10,000 feet above the west
