Fledgling


To confess to less would be a crime:

                              I take flight,

                not knowing if or where

                                                     or what

                                       I’ll find,



                        as if to bear the consequence

        were any choice of mine,



                while a risk

                              of such impertinence



seeks shelter one leaf, one cloud, one love, at a time.

Boosterflies! And other bugs. A very Spring piece, William - thanks for.

Thanks, Peter. This time of year, if we wave our nets enough we’re bound to catch something. This is what I found in mine.

'a risk of such impertinence' interesting choice of words William... and lovely finish, so true to life:)

The phrase in question also describes the poem and its making, I think. Thank you, Rahina.

one love, at a time. Ah yes.

one love, at a time. Ah, yes. Or is the comma implied? A space, to pace, divine.
