Angels, Blue and Gray (Day 552)


Hovering angels  blue 
and gray  shimmering 
like antique glass over 
the fields  humming in 
trees and up 
through the earth  
through the soles of my feet 
where I stand  weak-kneed  
shade-blessed  dazzled
by the sparking air  wrapped
in a darkly sighing breeze
Circling in pairs  perfectly 
matched  newly emerged into 
their eternal-summer world  
and gone before first frost 
lights each blade of sunrise 
grass afire  each blade of sunrise  
casting fluttering blue-gray 
shadows on fields of lavender 
mist where  once  this day 
happened  where  once  
shining angels hovered 
above the singing earth
