Enhancers of the sky

entry picture
 
Unaided masters
of aerial secrecy
composing their soaring flights
within the everchanging
high domain.
 
Free voyagers
feathered roamers
pleasing the grateful eye
warming 'however slightly'
the coldest of hearts.

Blimey Graham!
"what do I(you)know?"

a damn sight more than I do
I can assure you,and as such
your inspirations will always have
my most sincere thanks.

Although your suggestion would go well
I have tried in my present line
"THE grateful eye"
to take in wider views/opinions in the poem,
as of the subject matter there are no doubt
many of those.

Same regards to you.

P&S.

You've certainly captured the lightness of the feeling of flight. By the way, I wouldn't change a thing. I think I would have brought myself into this by saying "pleasing my grateful eye" etc. But then I've just said I wouldn't change a thing. What do I know??

regards, lovely piece. Graham

Hi this is lovely. I think I might replace 'upon' in line 4 with 'within' as for me this gives a greater feel of being part of their aerial kingdom. Also I'd use commas round 'however slightly'just to give a fleeting pause to the line thus giving greater emphasis to the last line as a contrast to the beauty of the soaring flights.
