Tensile Wings

Fragile in no way, pliable, flexible Delicate? Hardly. Reaching coves and corners Getting her monarch where she needs to be Tensile Wings Rarely broken, tough and durable, dependable Lifting up the faeries into the hollow of the oak tree Flattening themselves to slip into crevices Tensile Wings Vibrating with the hum of the wasp or the bee Showing damselfly, dragonfly and mayfly the way Lasting the duration of their life time Tensile Wings Giving an abused wife the push she needs to fly away Escaping the wrath and injustice of a sad man Who will have to find a new Luna moth So he can continue to pull off someone’s wings
