Death's wings


I look at the buds still wrapped
on the ripening kernels. I want
to be in there, unhatched and unpolished.

—Shirley Kaufman, "Poem in November", Gift of Tongues

Death's wings
written January 10th, 2021

The Angel Death
wraps his wings around me
I feel him there
when I stop suddenly
Death's wings
jostling around me
settling into place.

He holds his breath
so I won't have that proof
of his presence
or any other
reassurance in this life.

Are his wings protection?
or curse?
Their silence wrapped around
is my well known company
these many years
Death's wings my comfort in life.

I wrote this while reading a bunch of gritty urban fantasy. It is fun to try on different things. The poetry that I post as inspiration, is part of my poem also. I love that I am writing again! Thank you for reading me!

It How you feel from time to time
You are alive
Beautiful living
Life is waiting
You need to open up
Live for the day
Do let death
stand in your way
Life is breath
Breath it in
Death will come
But it not your end
Your love is strong
To live this long
Open your eyes
See death gone........
Xoxoxo your guardian angel
