on bended knee
in solitary repose
arm outstretched as if in
the visions floating
in my head
in blackened chiffon dress
indeed I tried to
make some sense
I pictured modern angels
a rhythm of
perched mid air
enraptured by the
beam of light
with poise and grace
and arms outstretched
bellowed sleeves for wings
they hung above my head
was it from
a dance in life
or a dance
yet I felt
no fear or anxiety
for their faces held
I heard whispers
merely ethereal souls
Flight of Fancy

why thank you Eun 🙂 x
This is so descriptive – I just love it! 😀
Good evening my friend – thank you kindly. Nice and warm up there? Bit chilly down this neck of the woods 🙂
It’s about 22, but I’ve got a cardigan and trackies on. How quickly I’ve forgotten how cold I used to be when I lived down south 😯
My feet are perched on top of the heating vent…sad but true. 🙂
Oh dear! I bought a foot warmer from Target when I lived in Canberra last year. Best investment ever! LOL 😉
Oh I also have my uggs and tracks, singlet and jumper… when I retire, I’m going to live in warmth, 22 would be nice right now.
It’s really nice. It doesn’t take long to get used to the tropics 😉
…bellowed sleeves for wings
