Wings and Words

Haiku Friday

It's been quite a while
since I've participated
in OSI, but

in this new decade
I intend to mend my ways
... so when I read the

prompt of 'wings' I thought
first of birds up in the skies
like the ones below

then remembered these
wings on a moose my sister
found while traveling

so it's more than one
single impression I share ...
hoping that's okay ;-)

Click mosaics to embiggen for better viewing
and for others participating in
One Single Impression
Wordful Wednesday at Seven Clown Circus

and Haiku Friday too ;-)

Thought for Today
"The golden moments in the stream of life rush past us and we see nothing but sand; the angels come to visit us, and we only know them when they are gone." George Eliot

That moose is FANTASTIC!

Ginny Hartzler said...

This reminds me that bird and moose both were created by God. One is beautiful and can fly and one is rather ugly and rather ponderous to me. Nevertheless, they are equal in value. I love your George Eliot thought for today!!!

Wonderful post! And that is why it is so important to be kind to strangers because we might well be entertaining angels unaware! :-)

Some great pictures there. Welcome back.

RA said...

Beautiful mosaics! I love the colors in the first one and the moose in the second one is so unique. Have a wonderful day :)

I think I need an angel moose! So pretty! I love the pink in some of the sky. :)

Janie said...

The birds on the wing are great shots, but the moose wings are so cute!

Carver said...

These are all great choices for wings.

Kim said...

Wow, again great photos! Love the mosaic effect and really would love to know how you did it. =)

That moose...adorable!! I love it. I have lots of bears and moose in my home (purely decorative of course - ha ha!)

Have a great day!

Unknown said...

Those are some beautiful wing pictures. I have always loved angles wings. Such a nice thought.

Momisodes said...

What perfect choices for the theme. I just love the moose!
Wishing you much happiness, health and prosperity in the new year.

Thanks for visiting my post for the Epiphany, storyteller! :)

Love the theme of your post. I do believe in Angels, but unlike some I do acknowledge their presence. I'm your newest follower. hope you can find time to stop by me.

sheila said...

I believe in angels too. I think they are all around us.

Lovely lovely post! Cool moose! lol

colleen said...

A moose angel is a funny and would make an interesting cartoon character I think.

Thanks for your supportive words left on loose leaf notes recently.

It's been a long time since I've seen wings on moose, but they are very attractive! :) I love the shots of colorful sky that surround those strong wings overhead.

SandyCarlson said...

Your impressions are very, very welcome. And oh so beautiful.

Jim said...

That was quite a find! I do think this is the Joe Camel character who smoked Camel cigarettes reincarnated into a moose/camel angel after he was killed by the FTC.

I am glad you wrote on the prompt as I had been missing you. Welcome back.

More Than Words said...

Love the pictures of the birds in the sky!

Pam said...

I love those flying birds. They look so graceful soaring through the air.

Amanda Moore said...

I agree the moose is amazing! what a great idea for a pic! Love the birds the skies are so pretty with their little silhouettes!

Janice said...

I loved the bird till I saw the moose -- outstanding! I'm glad you shared 2 single impressions! Works for me! (Love Ginny's comment connecting the 2, too.)

Pamela M. Kramer - A Renaissance Woman said...

That is a new one to me! A moose with wings.

Matty said...

A moose angel. Now there's something I haven't seen before. I wonder if that's Bullwinkle.

Tammie Lee said...

memories of wings, how lovely~

Sai Hijara - Ferraris said...

I'll think of butterflies for wings!

You're so imaginative to have found all those wings- I love the moose which was so unexpected!! Very cleverly done- thank you!

This is Bella from Bellasis...a lifetime before that I was Bella Mocha. Now I write on a different blog....a new beginning, a new way of expressing myself :)

Love the moose wings. First I saw the ears and thought they were wings. He has two pairs!
