Wings of Desire - memories


...When the child was a child,
it didn’t know that it was a child,
everything was soulful, and all souls were one.


When I was working on my entry for the EST challenge with the Theme 'Birds', my mind was wandering...
I used a big brass wing that has been given een beautiful verdigris patina.

That wing in particular made me think of one of the most beautiful movies I have ever seen:
'Der Himmel Uber Berlin' from Wim Wenders. (In English the title is 'wings of desire'.)

Rainer Maria Rilke's poetry partially inspired the movie; Wenders claimed angels seemed to dwell in Rilke's poetry. And one of my most fav band played in that movie (I was in my twenties then ;-): Nick Cave and the Birthday party.
