FROM ABOVE

Vancouver, British Columbia / Toronto, Ontario



My poem aboard Porter Airlines, flight 308


FROM ABOVE


Defying my beloved footwork

Above mountains I go

I view low smoke from the park

From wildfires aglow

Then comes the quiltcraft

Patches of agro-culture

To the right, to the left

A gorgeous picture

Then cotton ball clouds

Interrupting the scene

Become an angel hair shroud

With the sun now lean

A pastel sky pervades

Before Black Beauty Veil

Takes hold of such space

It's an aerial art gallery

I applaud the artist


And thank the pilot

And the attendants too


–By Bhaktimarga Swami



MAY THE SOURCE BE WITH YOU!
