Without wings

I'm joining Brian Miller for Friday Poetically.  This week he shares the art work of his friend Bonnie of Original Art Studio and asks us to choose one of her pictures, allowing it to prompt a poem.

Living in shadow
dreaming of wings
an embrace

Solidly grounded
dreaming of flight
one strong wind
setting free

Gazing in wonder
dreaming a kiss
holding breath

Searching for answers
dreaming of nights
love returned
let it be

Stop by One Stop Poetry to see what others have shared today.

let it be, for sure...i can see the wings in the pic now that you point them out...and love returning always makes me smile.

Gazing at a piece of art, or reading a poem - we are granted permission, it seems, to dream. Enjoyed this.

I like what you saw in the picture. Really like the second stanza.

It's what art is capable of - transporting us into another world, another hope. Good poem, Karin.

nicely done, love the lost-in-thought feel to this.
