NaPoMo 15: The Sky Is Calling

Stretching sinews greet
the rising sun in the east
a new day dawning
a new beginning
on the path to destiny
the soft downy feathers of youth
are gone; in their place
remiges and rectrices shimmer
in the early light
and in the contoured movement
he takes flight
his silhouette shadowed by the sun
the future beckons in undefined skies
and the raven cannot stay
he must fly
