Angel Wings

 

by Ashley Nelson

 

Angel wings flutter

in the midnight breeze

as the mother lays her head to rest

and wanders off to sleep.

 

Sparkling stars dance

in the dark night sky

as she kisses their heads.

and hums her lullaby.

 

Biting wind blows

in the wintry cold

as she sings to them softly

and tightens her hold.

 

Bright streetlights flicker

on the empty path

as she tiptoes down the hallway

to escape her wrath.

 

Autumn leaves rustle

in the midnight breeze,

as he strikes and beats

ignoring her desperate pleas.

 

Slithering serpents grin

in the bright yellow moon

as his laugh fills the air

and he whistles his evil tune.

 

Angel wings flutter

in the midnight breeze

as the mother lays her head to rest

and wanders off to sleep.
