Feather: a beseeching, a prayer, a calling forth and an asking to be held up; for plants, most purely ferns, which come from invisibility and open and continue opening; for birds, a wing covering that when set into motion conjures up lift and flight. To feather is to be physically open and to touch weightlessness or invisibility and to embody it.
