What do you see – A Daredevil in Flight

40

This poem was written for Helene Vaillant’s What do you see challenge:

What do you See? April 2, 2019

 

He’d had a prescient feeling

When his application had gone in.

The excitement sent him reeling

And made his head feel in a spin.

 

When the phone call came

To say he’d won the competition

He pretended all the same

That he hadn’t had a premonition.

 

The booked time was at midnight

The weather had been rather warm

It wasn’t a great time for his maiden flight

Particularly in a thunderstorm.

 

But regardless of the weather,

He put on his favourite sweatshirt

And carried his lucky eagle feather.

And prayed that no-one else gets hurt.

 

As the lightning struck across the sky

You’d think no one would have flown that day,

But he was a daredevil and that was why

He shouted, “Cast-off and Chocks Away!”

People are far too complicated to be able to describe in a few words so I am not even going to try.
