The Courage of Tattered Wings by Paula Tohline  Calhoun

Photographic Prints

Available to buy on…

This inspirational poster uses one of my favorite photos of a tattered-winged butterfly, still valiantly getting on with life. On the poster are words from a poem I wrote in conjunction with the picture:

“I wonder at such persistence through the
fraying nicks of daily struggle,
and sigh at the beauty –
at the constant push and pull against
the wayward air -
of his split and tattered wings.”
