The Thursday Think Tank - #24 Wings


This week’s prompt is wings. What would you do if you had wings? When you think of wings do you see them on Angels, Doves or Demons? Does your heart take flight when it’s in love? So much can be said and written about something as simple as soft feathery wings. Are there fairies in your garden? Do you miss the fact that there are so few fireflies? Wings can mean so many things to so many people; we want to see what they inspire in you to write. We look forward to your pen and imagination taking flight and can’t wait to see what you offer for us to read in this week’s Think Tank.

This week’s prompt, quote and photo was provided to us by Nino Taziz.  Thank you Nino for an inspiring prompt and helping us out here at Poets United.  If you would like to know more about Nino please visit the blog below:
