HOW THE ANGEL FORMS..

HOW THE ANGEL FORMS..

A Poem by M. L. F.

From a glint on the water -
reflected in sheen -
was a time and place forcast so pure..
And though she'd not know this -
for quite a long time,
this glint of light shone just for her..
The pain she would suffer -
quite few could endure.
Her coat of arms born from her fires..
It built deep inside, a flame burning white -
and her soul would give birth to empires..
As she finally rose up, the coat of arms shed -
and the metal lay cold on the moor ..
And a beam of light crowned -
on her head, raised from bow -
as her wings spread towards heavens shores..

I'm not quite sure what to make of this poem. The imagery is beautiful, and there's a sense of grandeur and of some sort of elevation, and the middle has a -
quite literally - fiery intensity. It seems almost that someone who endures so much in life - more than most could take - reaches a state of elevation. Hmm . . . Still can't put my finger on it. Sorry, M.
