Flying Wing

April is National Poetry Month! I am trying to write something every day, posting variously on this blog, on Twitter (@yearningangel) or on NaHaiWriMo’s Facebook page. This poem was in response to their April 4th prompt (“celestial”) and ongoing news about the worrisome situation in Korea.

dark-winged birds
fly to the heavens
war games

This majestic and powerful bird has deployed in three international skirmishes (aka wars). As much as I admire the amazing technology–and the brilliant people who developed, produced, operate and maintain it–I hope it will not be needed in a fourth.

Today’s photo was taken by Airman 1st Class Michael S. Dorus of the U.S. Air Force. You can see more at the U.S. Air Force B-2 Spirit web site.
