arriving at the right moment

Carpe Diem #1140 arriving at the right moment

sun angles
instincts stir within 
migration thoughts
feathers preened and gullets full
one takes flight into the blue

warming breeze
beneath their wings
gives rise
yearnings for homeland far
brings focus to the flight

there below
the call is heard and passed along
each glides to rest
arrive with the sun's last rays
it is just the perfect time

    Migrating birds do go through lots of hardships before arriving

    1. Yes, we are in the migration path for a couple different types of flocking type migrations. Also, lots of other types of individual birds, too.
