First Flight

Welcome to my Tuesday-evening Sijo! 🙂 This week’s prompt from Ronovan Writes is SOAR. My poem may not be exquisite but is, I hope, enjoyable.


The Wright Brothers‘ first powered flights lasted less than 200 feet, 
Only about 10 feet off the ground — yet celebrated soaring.
Do you think they got everything right, even after many tries?
