"wishing to fly" poets united thursday think tank #24 wings

From deep within the chasm,
of her eternal sleep
A nymph child awakens,
nightmares have interrupted
peacefulness

A satyr whispers in her ear
“your wings for immortality”
While his flute vibrates
within her

Carefully,
Unfolding her tiny extensions,
examining their details,
crying for release,
wishing she could fly,
with undeveloped wings

  1. Why life forever if one cannot fly?

    Nice take on the 'wings' prompt!
