Soar

Hotter the day

Easier to find updrafts

Caressing hilltop rocks

Breeze

Brushes away skeeters

Fans away sweat of brow

Overhead eagles drift lazily

Hardly lifting a feather

 

Watching

Calming

Remembers metaphorical mud

Wallowing

Uninspiring and ultimately dirty

 

Convection currents lift

Closer to overblue

Easier to soar

Than to be happy

Proverbial pig
