Having Learned from Icarus

I breathe you in, slow and deep,
and hold you inside, as power-
dark into beatitude.

Reaching way down into meaty
untouched places-
expanding the bones
where courage is contained.

I breathe out fuel and fire
in a deep sigh of release-
back into solemness.

Vowing not to melt these
fragile wings we've been given,
I rise up from you-
Soaring away from the sun.

Shannon McMorland Foley
