taking off, the art

is it so, that waterbirds*
push off the tip of their wing feathers
lift upwards on the echoes of their shadows
amid the ebb and flow of the ocean's breath
until sufficient air is gained underneath
enough to break away from earth
                                                  and gravity?

wonder how birds in the desert do it?

                                                       seems i have forgotten . . .

* double-crested cormorant and great blue heron taking off
