Sunday Scribblings: Wings

How does a bird fly? How does a butterfly fly? Is it enough to have wings? How about the airplanes – how do they fly?

Sunday Scribbling’s prompt this week is “WINGS”. I can’t help but associate WINGS with flying. It is possible to fly without wings? Are having wings enough to enable a creature or a thing to fly?

In my limited mind, I would say that having wings does not cause a thing to fly. The air beneath the wings "enables" it to do so. And with this simple explanation a verse from a song came to mind:

Did you ever know that you're my hero,
and everything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle,
for you are the wind beneath my wings.

I can fly …fly…because I have my family and friends as winds beneath my wings….

This is the most beautiful scribble I've read :)

Especially this:
"I can fly …fly…because I have my family and friends as winds beneath my wings…."

Thanks for sharing!

Loved the video. My husband sings this song to me and tells me I am the wind beneath his wings. My favorite tribute to him is Celine's Because you loved me.
