Angel

Standard

A tired, old path
fighting the grass
Rainy day soot,
blackens the walls
Dry, wrinkled skin,
hides empty pews

The angel watches,
arching her wings
Lattice and lace,
dripping in white
Faith’s last bastion
drips from her face

Inspiration: The juxtaposition of an aging church and a beautiful piece of refurbished architecture. Can you spot the angel?

 

Paradise

Pacific breeze,
paints the air blue
Float in the clouds,
drift to the ground
The lagoon stills,
and catches stones
Laden with cares,
until they sink
Green feathered trees,
wild jungle wings
A heartbeat thrums,
pumping new life
