Fragile

Does air envy wings?–
joyful dance of filtered light–
song of whispered wish

My Rorschach paintings often remind me of winged creatures.  Here I’ve taken one I did in greys and manipulated it in Photoshop to create (I hope) and effect of filtered light through wings.

The inspiration is from two sources:  Jilly’s “28 Days of Unreason” prompt “such fragile wings”, and Colleen’s Poetry Challenge this week.  Her words were hate and pride; I scoured thesaurus.com and came up with envy and joy as synonyms.

I’ve got another haiku starting with a similar question for tomorrow (plus another Rorschach painting).

    I don’t think it does. They share the same qualities (vata dosha). I am practicing my novice ayurvedic knowledge here, but reading air then wings and thinking flight, I immediately thought vata.

    Lovely haiku. I’m not sure about the question–I’ll have to ponder–but I the lines are beautiful, as are the images–wings and light.

    giving breath as spirits lift
    not knowing wings envy air

    (I like the filter effects.)

    I like the grey and yellow ones. They have a look of soft , fuzzy texture which reminds me of moths

    Interesting question in your Haiku (which I love). And your accompanying artwork is also lovely. They do suggest light through wings! 🦋

    I am thrilled you found some inspiration in the Harrison quote! Your poem and pictures are filled with a gentleness that reflects a depth of beauty. Love the words ‘whispered wish’ – the sound quality is perfect! ~Jilly
