wings to fly | karin taylor

Today you sent me wings I see
Such tiny sweet transparency
Like cellophane and tiny twigs
You fashioned these to set me free
I’ll put them on and fly up high
With birds and bees in yonder sky
I’m cur-i-ous to climb the clouds
To wander far and near and wide

Today I came across a dead cicada on the window sill in the bathroom. His wings, perfectly formed. This is the result of the photo shoot today, with some tweaking in Photoshop CS4 and a texture from Shadowhouse Creations. I hope you like it. I wrote this poem afterwards.
