Michael Hopkins (Chicago, IL USA)
An Angel Fell.
An Angel fell into a dark abyss.
A Human stood at the edge of Darkness and Light with clear seeing eyes and said,
The Angel fell deeper and deeper into the darkness.
Again, the Human said,
The Angel continued to fall.
Deeper and deeper, closer to the imaginary point of no return.
Once again, said the Human,
The Angel paused and looked up toward the Human and said,
'So, it will be'
The Angel began his flight upward and outward of this temporary darkness.
Back to His rightful Home within the Realm of Light.
Poet's Notes about The Poem
My inspiration was a B movie called 'Legion' which I surprisingly enjoyed. I write in two different way. If I meditate and pray before I get a flow in wwhich the words and sentences come to me in perfect form and I don't need to change a thing, just spell check.
The other way is the way that I wrote this poem. In a moment of inspiration I get a few lines or words and then from that outline, craft a poem over days or weeks by playing withthe words to get a feling or tone that will resonate with others.
This one took me about 12 hours to craft. I published it this morning on my blog, mnhopkins.blogspot.se
I hope that you enjoy.
M.N. Hopkins is my writing name.
