Angelic beings

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

Monochromatic contrast
Light against darkness


The dove perches on the wooden stall of the stable. I see only its back, white against the red-gold light. The folded wings  form a symbol of love. In the shadows, a newborn lamb takes its first faltering steps. I am apart from the scene, yet part of it; a witness, another note in the song, as the dance of life begins. In fragility and peace, I hear echoes of an ancient story. The farmyard angel watches and I, in my turn observe, awake to both kinship and  choice.


Clinging to shadows
Darkness closes on the mind
Hope seems extinguished
Turning my face to the light
I will choose to walk in peace
