It's time once again
to put pen to paper and draft some poetry for the Annual NAMI NJ
Dara Axelrod Expressive Arts Mental Health Poetry Contest!
There are many definitions
of flying in Webster's Dictionary. Jacquese Armstrong, chose "moving
or capable of moving in the air" as the basis for the challenge
for this year's poetry contest.
Jumping or free-falling
from a mountain and sprouting wings has been seen as the equivalent
of freedom in many literary works. In any case, the cliff represents
being on the precipice of a new journey. These statements form the
basis for our host's take on flying in her poem "for those
of us with unclipped wings. " What's yours?
