Michael's Chronicles: Flight

Michael Thiele is a woodsmith who makes musical instruments and playable furniture. He spends most of his life either in the shop or out on the road buying wood and selling his work at craft shows. In recent years, his travels have begun to inspire his own writing, so he sends me his thoughts.

Monday, March 11

Sometimes I believe I can fly
Sometimes I know it
I don’t crave the power
I just want the view

Such freedom there is in movement
Never make the mistake
Of standing in place
For too long

Myopia is the condition
No eye doctor can cure
What you see on the outside
Lives in the mind’s eye

Move around to open your view
Breathe life - take it all in
Are we all not in desperate need
Of wonder and amazement?

Grab the wind
Or perhaps just a dream
Let go and fly
I believe you can

I know you can
