Like Stained Glass

wings-4835I used to work a bit in stained glass, mostly suncatchers, not the big leaded window designs one sees in churches and Victorian homes, as much. So details of wings especially intrigue me.

I used to create a lot of butterly suncatchers. Noticing this detail had me in my head, designing pieces of stained glass once again. Maybe some clear glass with copper threading, not necessarily heavier led channels. Delicate, whistful, beautiful.

Note the dusting of pollen on the wings, like golddust. Tiny particles, that from a distance we wouldn’t even notice. But up close, the powdery substance looks like someone had sprinkled yellow bits across the wings. Maybe some fairy dancing by with a basket of golden pollen, sprinkling it, dancing along.

Spring, what a joyful, magical time of  year. Bright colors everywhere. and early spring, that unfolding after a long winter’s sleep. Reawakening. Alive and dancing among the flowers.
