Comfort's Angel

I had a dream that there appeared to me a little girl whose hands I touched were silk. Her tender eyes belied the purity of angels, and her skin was white as milk. She said, “In your despair, I heard your call for comfort, which I’ve come to bring to you. My hands do not look strong, for they are small, but used in prayer, there’s much that they can do.” Before me, in the darkness of that night, with palms upturned, she gently closed her eyes, and as she prayed, I saw a stream of light shine down with myriads of butterflies. I woke most splendidly refreshed in bed to see a monarch flutter near my head. Written 12/20/13 by Andrea Dietrich and Based on Visual #7 in nette onclaud's WITH THESE HANDS Contest

    Utterly astounding! I can't help comparing your lines to silk as well. So smooth and flowing. The second stanza could be a famous poetic quote, I think. Extremely profound. Thanks for your analysis of Oak Tree Swing. I wish you a Happy New Year!

    This is pure beauty. Last week I was at a butterfly palace. There was a living angel and butterflies were resting on her head, robes, and her hands. Amazing to see.

    Small miracles occur daily, often overlooked but then noted by the poet. What an empty place the world would be without little children praying and poets to see the beam of revealing light. Merry Christmas.
