The Angel Offers Her Peace Talk (Sunday Prompts)


The evil is practicing violence
in the dark,
Trees suffer,
with broken arms left in the park.
.
Not amused
to see nature being abused,
The angel offers her peace talk
while the humming bird does its ground work.
.
It seems such an important matter,
Even the clouds tilt to listen,
Raindrops fell on her eyelashes,
and made them glisten.

Beautiful poem...I like this concept: "The angel offers her peace talk." In the midst of darkness, it is nice to know there are angels watching us. Nicely written.

Reflections said...

Though you speak of an abuse on nature/by nature... 'trees suffer with broken arms left in the park',
there is a tenderness, the touch of an angel.

Beautiful write.
