He gazes at the different hues of ribbon covering the sky , it is a pattern he is not familiar with. The unfamiliar always dangerous.
He breathes several times and makes up his mind, he will once again soar the skies.
That is when the light hits his eyes. A brief second of absolute joy. He observes the sky and finds the path , the pattern now looks familiar.
The small hole that would let his soul soar , he rises up flying into the sky , flying into freedom.
