flightless


they carried me away on dreams of flight,
the tattered remnants of 
youth's wings 
are now forever held,
in endless light


(linking to dVerse poet's pub)

youths wings tend to be lost often, i would hope they would stick around in that endless light..smiles.

Oh, this is so beautiful, Leslie. Youth's wings, now just tattered remnants. Very well said.
I particularly enjoy it after writing deliberately bad poetry today (it was fun, but it wasn't art).

cool and somewhat mystical. I love the photo and like the idea of youth being preserved in light.
