Christina: The Descending Angel
"Descending Angel" by John Wimberley

THE DESCENDING ANGEL

I felt the air stir, and the breezes start
and the quickened beating of my heart,
when the trees bent and the stars came out
in the daytime;
but I was filled with doubt

Are they among us?
Do you think?
Is it a myth or do we shrink
from the theory of angels, when a prayer vigil ends?

I think there are days when each Descends.
