Chasing the Raptor--By Ken Allan Dronsfield--United States

Chasing the Raptor

The ghostly shadow soars in an exhilarated flight;
forbidden in life; bequeathed through the veil;
Memories burned away like a nebula's fiery light;
Rising from the earth; to the clouds I inhale.

Once only strife where life should have been;
Destiny fulfilled during sunset at the harbor.
I'll smile for awhile; an electricity upon my skin.
Soaring through the mists, chasing the raptor.
