Leap of Faith

when we took ourselves out into the open something made us
some avowal we made to ourselves to follow on into the unknown
that arousal of ideas we felt inside deep and gutted as well as light
and spiritual so we urged quick quick up through the high rise the blue
brilliance of what we wished for and took every chance for the wind
to catch hold of our wings and found ourselves several times
looking for remedies even then taking risks asking to be taken
out of our bodies wind wind catch our wings separate our loneliness
from the far reaches
though by then we were getting on
we were thirty years into the future imagine what we were thinking
our breath blood bones splayed out with longing and sometimes
would say look at us what are we doing and even now
at ground level forty years on my heart stays wild
