Whisper firelight, 

Bulbs streaming, echo;

Luminescence down aisles. 

Tattered covers, 

Creased pages;

Stolen dreams. 

Knowledge and eternity, 

Whispy veils. 

Yesterday’s —

Hopes and dreams.  

Today’s yearned for;  

Distant ripples. 

Pools echoing. 

Beloved tomes, 

Wisdom without reassurance. 

Do I break? 

Pinch of courage, 

One must try. 

Fall, 

To rise, 

On eagles wings.

    “On eagles wings” -> wow! The sense of freedom rings through this line. Wonderful poetry, Mandi.

      I’m glad that was my hope. Like the Bible verse, trusting in God to help you and save you on eagles wings. Also shown wonderfully in the LOTR movies with Gandalf 🙂
