The Bird with A View

Regan airport

Cloud tufts floating,
cast moving shadows,
on Earth unsegmented
and segmented by civilization.

Above flies the bird with a view,
Engineered by human ingenuity,
Carefully calibrated,
Navigating through imaginary lines
Drawn around the globe;

Realizing the myth of the magic carpet and the winged man,
Once a deep yearning of our ancestors,
Today’s ubiquitous reality.
