Wings and Things

Here and there
With a sideways stare
See fly by flutters
And wonder why

Making do,
Doing in pairs
Feather light carriage
Portals of a marriage

Which way wishes,
Away with the fishes
These things
With wing-tipped
Colours and grace
Ply my path with choices

My nest is my castle,
But when the time comes,
I too must take flight

Wings and things to discover
Watch the ebb and flow
Taste the air,
Flower to flower
Tree to tree
Place to place

Wings that sing.


released July 25, 2014
Wings and Things has been created in direct response to Chris Maynard's artwork, "Choices F" (pictured) and is part of the project "52 Sound-Paintings". More info here: helendavey.com/blog/week-31-chris-maynard/
