Poetry, writing,and music are at the heart of Charmaine's loves. Not to forget swimming in the ocean,walking and wildlife.

Silent swooshes and ooshes are felt below

pulling up my head and face from my toes

There go the wings of consciousness

shattering the crystals of nigh-time’s graciousness

As quick as newborns avert a bad smell

so, too, these night fliers repel

following only the night sky’s

perfumed ties

The night fliers of the moon avoid the echoes that loom

difficulty, restrictions and obstructiveness

The night fliers are now saying

it’s time to bid farewell to the self-denying

      Im happy that this poem evoked colourful images witin your mind. It means you've flown out of the birdcage.

      Peace to You Jodah.

      PS when you say a "well done " you sound like a parent or instructionalist. There is no need. We are here for freedom through ideas and imagery. Yes?
