(After Psalm 91:4)

Under hollow bones
connected by mere cartilage and skin
clothed in feathers and down?

Then I remember
the wing-bearer
has the heart of a lion.

The internet is full of interesting poetry prompts. My attention was snagged by this photo of a wing with its challenge to write a poem on the Everyday Poems Facebook page (way back on January 20th).
