winged 1

When she transformed into a butterfly the caterpillars spoke not of her beauty but of her weirdness. They wanted her to change back into what she always had been. But she had wings. _Dean Jackson

winged 2nymph


Give me wings
Burn them onto my skin
Ink them upon my arms
Let them shelter me from harm

Give me wings so that I may try
Give me wings so that I may cry

Give me wings
Let me fly.

A poem by Lee Banks

Look behind me,
I don’t have wings
simply a bare back and spine.

But oh, how I wish to fly.
