Harvest of Wings is one of the short stories in Dark Reflections.
Harvest of Wings
Butterfly wings, bright and orange,
eyes of their own ward against evil.
Clear wings of dragonfly,
break illusions with their magic.
Mixed with the feathered wings of birds,
From the ladybug,
hardened strong wings,
reminder of wishes and family.
Wings from flies,
Wings from bees,
dance a language.
The leathery wings from bats,
guard against the shadows.
Sacrifices for the flightless,
stirred with the light of the moon,
fixed with the heat from breasts,
grown in the wonder of nature,
spread on the air from the mind.
Wings are born.
