Have you ever caught the air with your body?
I try to do it all the time,
but really, it happens once in a lifetime.
You know that feeling?
The one when you hit it right and just take it…
that feeling when the body and air becomes one
When you actually feel like you’re one force;
body, air and wind.
That second when you catch a flight in mid-air,
that space between the land and air,
The best of both worlds,
and that’s when you hit it and take it.
That’s when you feel the wings.
The wings you’ve forgotten you’ve always had,
that body, wind and air have just become a dust of gold in a second.
And then you land back on your feet in your human form,
Knowing what you’ve felt was magic,
the magic one feels when they hit it and take it…
