Flight of Feathers

a feather dances
on the horizon
soft and weightless
on a gust of wind.
the shade of a cloud
not yet ready to fall into rain.
it might be from a rebellious seabird
or maybe an ornamental dove.
about the size of an index finger
pointing right upwards to the sky.
as if determined to keep going
without its owner,
free to fly.
