“Golden Feathers” (detail, artist unknown) – Makati, 15 November 2016

fluttering
to earth:
angel’s wings
drifting like
snowflakes
and i
stand ‘neath
the sky
bemused
bewildered
bewitched
by the
magic
swirling through
the air
around me.

and i
breathe in
the power
that surges
through
and it
soothes me
calms me
deep within.

and a
feather
flutters into
my hand
and shimmers
and glimmers
and dissolves
seeping
into my
skin
adding to
my lustre
my glamour
my magic;
and i
walk away
stronger
more sure
blessed.
