Once You Have Tasted Flight

For once you have tasted flight
You will walk the earth
With your eyes turned skywards,
For there you have been
And there you will long to return.
Leonardo da Vinci

It was my good fortune to first taste flight from that slip of a runway at the  Sedona Aiport, Sedona Arizona USA. I have indulged, enjoyed, and savored it since. A heart filled with gratitude to  Lt. Colonel Ricardo W. Mestre,                US Air Force Retired, for teaching me how to fly.

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Boundaries.”


  1. Brings to mind another peom I bet you know, or would enjoy: John Magee’s “High Flight” (starts, Oh I have slipped the surly bonds of earth / And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings…)
