The Elder said to the Child ..."But ,,,, I can't Fly" ...
The Child could not hold back an Honest Laugh,
Then replied ... "Everyone Can FLY ,,, SILLY"
It was mid morning. I have long forgotten or possibly have just permitted an urgency to fade,,,, To That which Pulls Me Near... Learning verbally to Speak with The Angel less and less ,,,, My once treacherous Journey has transformed gradually into a smooth Illusion.
Everyone's individual life is uniquely separate,
Yet each moment entered into another's,
Creates that which Connects Us All
This particular encounter being one of many that is experienced with each step I take. The Child was standing on a rock which made her height equal to the elder to which she was speaking. I overheard just a simple exchange. The elder was saying that he could not fly. I have no knowledge of what led this exchange to the exact moment of which I entered their world. It is useless to guess or assume that which we are not privy to. So how this conversation between This child and that old man got to this point,,, I simply do not know. Yet here I Am. Forget not, there Is no random in life.
Coincidence,,, if not God,,, Know God is Present....
The only sliver meant for me was the Child's response,,, A response preceded by a magical shy escape of laughter. The Innocent Laugh became the Key that opened My Invitation Into Their Lives,,, Their World. Their Moment.
"Everyone Can Fly,,, Silly" was what the Child said..... From behind,,, Wings slowly sprouted. ....The child was now taller than the old man. She was no longer standing on the boulder...... She was above.
Moments in time come so quickly and go even faster. With my next step I was out of Their World. It was mid day before the Angel and I sought rest in the shade of a Great Tree. I wanted so bad to ask,,, to speak ....about the Child and the elder. Yet I held back My questions..I initiated no need to What I had witnessed. Yet the Child's Words continued to tear at my Heart.......
I still said nothing.....So To that, I received no explanations in return... Maybe I was afraid ? Yes it was fear, but fear of what ?
Maybe I could not bear the thought of hearing aloud,,,,,
Me saying,,,,,"But,,, I can't FLY" ???
Like always,,,, The Angel at My Side ,,,, just Let Me Be Me....even in silence.....
