ANGEL PARTS by Melissa Hager
after “Mountain Whispers” by Jane Voorhees

Cherubim wings brush tousled hillside,
reach from soaring heavens to coax
morning dew from upturned pines,
forest floors, into the sunrise.

Or perhaps tendrils of seraphim hair
float down from stormy skies
to relieve heat of a sultry afternoon
as sun sets on the day.
