A Brief Touching With Angels



A flutter of egrets,
With the white wings of angels,
Fills the arms of a palm,
Waiting without intent
For the moment of their arrival.

An unpredicated sharing of leaves and feathers,
Swaying in the arched arrays of the tree,
Touching and caressing like true lovers,
In the cool morning air.

A momentary mingling
Of color and form in motion,
A beautiful, living, raiment
From which the heart
Rejoices.
