DARK ANGEL

























Photo by S. Auberle

I will always love
the sound of wings
never knowing
if it's bird or angel
like a single raven
at high-desert dawn
black velvet in motion
or a dove in the pines
breast feathers fluttering
down in small, winged prayers
the turquoise flash
of a lazuli bunting
like an unearthed
Anasazi necklace
but tell me
do you also wait
with terrible joy
never knowing
if that winged sound
is a dark angel
coming for you?
