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.
