~~ Another Angel ~~   7 comments

Through the foggy realm of sleep

A hazy slyph came from the deep

And in this haunting nighttime mist

Came a tender touch, then a kiss.


This sprightly spirit danced through the room

Banishing the impending gloom

Her gown a lacey, gauzy veil

Her features pallid white, and pale.


Her scent jasmine and columbine

Mixed with that of rose and wine

She vanished in the morning’s glare

The sleeper reaching in despair.


With dawn all trace of her was gone

‘cept a hint of jasmine in the air

On the nightstand in the sun

A wilted rose was laying there.

Another star shines in the night sky…

And heaven gained another angel…
