Aerodynamic #writing #aviation #poetry

airplane wing

Lift, weight, drag

nature needs no calculation

elements take flight

*

birds effortless soar

seasons provide inspiration

view from the eyrie

*

uncontrolled the wind

my mind shifts to the stars

blinded by moon dust

space shuttle

 

The prompt for Poet’s United Midweek Motif is “Wind Power.”

Look Up #poetry #devotion

 

wright

They looked up to the sky

wondering how the birds might

Men in their minds worked

puzzling over to flight

Time after time they tried

always another glitch

falling apart at the seams

so unlike the finch

trials they persevered

eager to gain height

broken bones and wings

brothers were named Wright

higher and higher we fly

looking beyond the loon

forging a further frontier

what marvel to walk on the moon

***

It took commitment (day in and day out) for men who wanted to fly to build that dream. It takes (daily) commitment, a focus forward, and stamina to strive toward a relationship with our God.

“Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead.”

Philippians 3:13

Waxen Wings #atozchallenge #poetry #Icarus #photography #napowrimo

Do you (in love) fly too close to the sun only to melt in disappointment?

Catching one last flight on the Pacific before sunset

Why did you  like Icarus fly

 toward the sun

on waxen wings

of love’s ill

begotten current

**

why did you not learn

that icy love melts

fool’s promises

never last

long

***

why don’t you perch

on this strong arm

frail, battered bird

until you try at flight

again

Nautilus

This year for  A to Z challenge, I am using the Nautilus as my inspiration all month. The shell has many chambers (at least enough to fit all the letters.)  You will find poetry,  You will find some dark stuff (as I am attempting to branch into the horror genre), You will also see a smattering of short stories or prose (some with children in mind) others as lessons that we can all learn from. I look forward to  meeting you and getting to know some talented writers over this month long writing journey. Please check over at the A to Z challenge and see what they are up to; they are a fine bunch of folks.

Depends on What You’re Flying With.

We all know about the Wright brothers. Oroville and Wilbur were either two insane individuals or visionaries. Probably a combination.

They were not the first to consider the effects of flight or the last. There was the myth of Daedalus and Icarus.  The story of a man and his son who made wings from feathers and wax. Icarus flew to close to the sun and his wings melted. Icarus’  beautiful flight tragically ended as he plummeted to the sea.

Recently, I attended the memorial of a dear cousin. My cousin from a young age had a fixation on mechanical things and aviation. One day he experimented with the laws of aerodynamics and the laws of gravity. He equipped his five-year old sister with a very large umbrella and instructed her to hold on tight as she jumped from the roof of the house. His sister jumped and saw that gravity is a stronger law than aerodynamics as she became one with the ground.

My cousin continued experimenting with  small machines that were intended to fly out of mower engines and the like. Finally he gave up on creating his own flying machine and took to the air in machines constructed by Cessna and Lear. I used to fly with him when I was a kid and even though he would pull some stunt flying he always did it safely. Over the years – He had some near misses with weather and guerillas.

I was impressed by the number of lives  saved because of this one man who would fly donor organs all over the nation – no matter the weather.

Of all his passengers,  his sister (at five ) was the only one who ever sustained injuries. She never flew with an umbrella again but she had plenty of delightful memories with her brother the pilot who saved lives.

Faith & Entropy

Gud skaper noko nytt ved sitt Ord og sin Ande, vi kan ta imot det i tru og få oppleve at han gjer sitt verk med oss. Hans skaparkraft verkar konstuktivt i våre liv og skaper noko som er verdifullt for oss. Naturkreftene verkar nedebrytande, i fylgje entropilova, men Gud er Ånd og det som er født av hans Ande består. Jesu frelsesverk er fullbrakt og fullkome. Han er den siste Adam, som er ifrå himmelen og som for oss har vorte ei livgjevande ånd. Han gjev oss den Heilage Ande frå himmelen av berre nåde. Han gjev oss det evige livet.
