rising above land and sea,
adrift in the misting clouds,
feeling the wind through her hair,
(the pull to bring her down).
It was all forbidden,
(girls were not meant to rise)
but she knew it was never wrong
to soar as high as she could,
this is what she taught her daughters–
and her sons–
and when she could no longer fly
they did so for her,
laughing in the misting clouds,
resisting the forces that sought to bring them down.
This is for Secret Keeper’s Weekly Writing Prompt.
