Wing-of-Bird

First   
the twinge of bone:
         feathers attach
                   painful, yet
  somehow transcending
                   ground and
the now-ness of temporal agony.
 
Skeletal complexities fan – now in, now
 
out, now soar: old age flaps, youth,
                  renewed, soars
    to cloud, to wind, to heights
                   of grace floating
           on broken,
fledgling, resurrected
wings.
