Of Angels and Their Folded Wings

The angels, with their folded wings walk on silent ground They know not whether to weep, or wield their sighing harps. It seems like hearts are stones, or jewels would they be? Precious gems, maybe. Of different hues, with scattered light. Encrusted, unpolished by time and tears, and by things spoken and not... The angels, moving forward-- with their timid halos and shorn heads- their soles touching sacred ground. 156a20612272013r1120

Beautiful, Nikko! :) I liked how you used your punctuation and spacing on this one! :) The content is sweet! Oh.....but why did you shear their heads? ;) Hair is what attracts me to the most. Ok...silliness aside....hearts or stone or gems? I loved how you ran with that thought...contrasting the two! Beautiful!
