There are as many ways
to fly as varieties of birds.
There is no right way,
only flying or not flying.
Some birds glide gracefully
going far on one powerful stroke,
some flutter glide, flutter glide
or breast stroke in peaks and slopes.
All get where they are going,
as they were designed.
The only “wrong” way is to not fly
and then starve in body and spirit
for the lack of soaring.
