Citizens of the Skies

My heart-rise sweeps the sky — cry joy,
climb high, soar
in curved air currents, stir the wind, mingle
in the moisture of a cloud.

Gravity is nothing to us.

You earth-walkers, doomed
to two dimensions, know nothing
of the swoop and curl and wheel
of the world above.

We pity you.
