This Twilight Sky Sent At The Right Time

Augustus’ favorite heaven…
      A pumpkin twilight sky with a daub of purple
                  Dash of rose pink, wafting across the sleepy sky
     Perchance an angel has been painting?

Happenstance being what she is,
       My heart flutters with unannounced joy
                  Wiping a dank day from my memory, 
      Soothing my heart. Archangel Michael whispers a gentleness I needed.

An act of folly has held me hostage 
       In the throes of the throes of my most unhappy self.
               But this twilight sky, sent at exactly the right time
       Is soothing my spirit in heavenly ways…..delighting me so.

Thank you M.L. This kind of poetry was a real STRETCH for me. I love it, but it is difficult to do. Not easy at all.
