I marvelled at the set of angel lights at the the beginning of each block, with another set of angels at the end, as I joined my friends at a pub. 

It seemed right these angels should be here, watching over the revelry. As I later walked a block down in the early morning hours to catch a cab, I recalled my thoughts on angels as child. 

Sometimes I had nightmares and I was too afraid to fall asleep. My Mom told me not to worry because God’s angels were always watching over me. Still, I looked to the corners of my room afraid because the corners were the darkest places. 

Eventually, I began to imagine angels were there in these corners guarding me as I slept. If I woke up afraid I’d look to the corners of my bedroom ceiling and feel safe. Sometimes I dreamed I could see these celestial beings watching over me. 

Going home that night in the cab I gazed at the angels made of lights, four of them guarding a street; I hoped the night ended safely for all.

Poem: Senryu – “Secrets”


Word Prompt Secret from the Daily post.

—–
Words your soul, whispers

My ears listen well, dare tell?

Keep hidden sad words,

—–

Feeling required, share;

Such wicked truths placating,

Your burden on me.

—–

I see you pass by,

Vindictiveness and lies, 

Secret, why bother?
