More Wings

behind every door s

into light's shadow s

Jane Dougherty posted a challenge (via Jerennazuto at itsallaboutnothingg) for a story about lost wings.  I’ve been working on a series of postcard fiction responses to Paul Klee’s angels, and this one seemed to fit the prompt well.

Behind every door,
dreams
of escape–
like a bird on fire,
she was gone–
into the light’s
shadow.

The work of Klee’s I referenced here is titled “Angel in the Making”.

    I don’t know this Klee. The colour is luscious. I don’t associate him with red. Your firebird poem fits it beautifully.

    Doors do suggest opening them and escaping.
