An Angel Weeps

Look all around you
what do you see?
a world that was beautiful

Look closer, draw near
look from above
see the gnashes

There are great bare patches
de-void of their trees
just dust bowls

The angel watches
and her tears fall
like rain

As each lands
it heals the land
new growth appears

Soon a host of angels
each one weeping
their tears restoring all

    This is a difficult poem to comment on because it requires faith. Anyone who doesn't believe in Angels will have difficulty understanding it. I must confess I don't understand it.

    imagination rather than faith I think? ty Catherine think of the angel as your guardian maybe? appreciate you reading Shadow x smiles
