Burdened Wings

Why is it that
so many things
have blackened our wings  
soot weighing us heavy  
Stuck here it seems  
on this muddied ground  
without a lost and found  
or any warm safe refuge  
So we started this way  
each on a different day  
the oddest of paths crossing  
at a fated junction  
Not by chance  
nor by mistake  
both meant to take  
this poetic journey ... together  
Still who could ever know  
why a black feathered crow  
would meet this dragonfly  
anywhere ... but in the sky
