Wings of Feathers and Wax -dVerse Poetics

image

A solitary remnant

laid to waste, glued to the ground.

Once,

once upon a time

this delicate  creation

this deceptively ethereal whisper

assisted the majestic eagle,

it soared atop mountains

and touched the sky

singed by the sun.

Oh Icarus!

You peaked too son.


Tonight it’s time for dVerse Poetics, where Victoria invites us to write on the subject of feathers, in whichever way takes our fancy. This made me think (for a few minutes)! I was gong to write about the feather’s structure, but (as is often the case) changed my mind very early on. I tend not to fight the muse on these occasions, and go with her flow. I hope you like it!

Please do head on over to dVerse, enjoy the variety… or take part!

TJ’s Household Haiku Challenge – Wing

harness the trade winds

soar to the star-spangled sky

immerse in beauty

 

imagination

take flight, pierce the stratosphere

give wings to your soul

 


 

Where does the time go? It flies, right? It seems only moments since I was sitting at my spot on the sofa, writing last week’s haiku for TJ’s revamped Household Haiku Challenge!

This week, TJ invites us to write a haiku inspired by either the image he has supplied, the word (this week, ‘wing’), or both! So, here are my two offerings, I hope you enjoy them! Please do hop on over to his blog to see the other lovely haiku offerings, and why not take part yourself? It’s fun!
