    A soul in tension — that’s learning to fly
    Condition grounded but determined to try

    Can’t keep my eyes from the circling skies
    Tongue-tied and twisted just an earth-bound misfit, I.

    Precisa la toma de la foto en el momento del vuelo, realmente hermoso!

    Precise photo taking at the time of the flight, really beautiful!
