Little Boys…Big Dreams

Wright Brothers Memorial 001 (2)

A memorial to the Wright Brothers;
Young men with dreams of flying.
The beginning of something
greater than themselves
with a giant monument of stone,
high on Jockey’s Ridge
in North Carolina.
Little boy visits and wonders
what it would take to
be remembered
with a monument of Stone.
It takes dreams
and the courage to live them out;
It takes someone to inspire
to encourage
to believe the impossible.

Dedicated to my son, who always believed he could fly!

  1. Thank you for this inspiring poem you dedicated to your son.
    I am so glad to have been able to share this feeling.
    When I grew up I also wanted to fly and always studied big birds to see how …, luckily I didn’t jump off a cliff trying to flap my arms.

  2. And does he have his pilot’s license? I believe I can fly, too. But, I do it in someone else’s plane! (Unless you speak metaphorically… the I fly every day!) I am blessed to have “someone to inspire
    to encourage” in my life. That’s a key ingredient – for sure!!
