I take it the ILLUSION OF WINGS is also an illusion. When thew airplane's physical image is re-imagined as fishlike and swimming on a vault, it doesn't need wings! It's no longer an air traveler, but a water-traveler. But it's just a metaphor that pretends to change reality.

Brilliant imagery. Airplanes in the sky resembles a fish with outstretched fins.

Great Haiku.... In the cerulean heights, the airplane is like a fish in the deep blue waters!

Exquisite way of representing the plane as a (metallic) fish that vaults in its waters, that is the celestial space. Of course as a fish it needs no wings, what we see as wings is an illusion.

part 1 / You are one of the few poets who can preserve the poetry of the text in short and long texts as well, same as T S Elliot, here in this haiku in every line we see an analogy that increases the value of your work Aesthetically,
