Nurturing Thursday - A poem...

(image copyright Jenny Freckles, used with permission)


Can an angel fly with a broken wing?
Or is it like a bird, trapped, earthbound,
Hopping from place to place?

Or can it, by angelic force of will, 
Transport itself to wherever
Loving comfort is needed?

Or rather does its broken, static state
Offer silent solace enough  
To any way-weary passer-by?

Wrote this on Tuesday over on my other blog in response to Jenny's gorgeous photo.

Sharing it here today.

  2. Hi Claire -- you know that you've written a good poem when it leaves readers with questions to ponder! This angel looks dignified and peaceful, so I do not think she would hop like a bird or feel trapped. She looks too solid to magically transport herself, though, so I would say she just stays where she is and comforts the passers-by. :)
