The Shape of Eternity

There are no edges in life
but curves; no corners
but imperfect angles like
the cartileged joints where
wings are attached to
the keel-shaped sternum.

This means the world is round,
gravity is not final until
the wind dies down and the hollow
light-blue spirit leaves its body
to settle into the ground. Then,
like an arrow shoots skyward.

I most deeply loved your spirit driven insight that "gravity is not final until the wind dies down" -
