Poetry Friday: LOON RISE

LOON RISE

The loon labors
above the still lake—
     struggling to rise,
     heart burdened
     by this flight.

The loon lands
on the still lake—
     gliding forward,
     heart calmed
     by this homecoming.

The loon calls
across the still lake—
     resonating radiance,
     heart glorified
     by this true rising.

  2. Beautiful! I like the structure of the poem two lines about the loon on the lake followed by three phrases that help me to visualize the loon.
