winged...





winged 
horses mean aspiration

winged
eagles mean beginnings

winged
lions mean beginnings and endings


but I can't seem to find some soulful meaning for

damaged

metal wings

Winged metal wings mean there is a heavy load to carry! Not many have the sustaining power to see things through! Nicely Gemma

washed out rocker finding a new way in life? maybe...ha...

though my thoughts turn more to mourning the loss of life...and the unexpected colateral damage of war...

so to me, they are sad

These damaged metal wings do indeed feel heavy and remind us how fragile life is.

In some things it is very hard to find meaning.....if not impossible.

The power of words: these few lines sent shivers up my spine.
You were inspired.

yes no meaning in senseless killing. ...damage metal wings remind me of the recent plane crash and loss of lives...

Powerful and very thought provoking. This really hits hard and is very well done. Excellent.

A poignant and sad poem, Gemma. I think the Malaysia Air tragedies with terrorist acts underlying the disasters defy comprehension.

You brought this all together beautifully. Damaged wings cannot do their job of keeping us aloft.
