The Angel Tree - Poem by Sandra Hawkins

A leaf broke away, spinning to the earth
droplets of dew formed from unheralded sadness

As the leaf spiraled downward, a beautiful angel
plucked it from the air, admiring perfection.
Divine breath pushed it high above her
wafting upward, the leaf glistened. Rays of light
gently tugged until forward motion was felt.
Brightness arrived

Pure love formed a golden aura as the leaf
slowly turned, twinkling into a star.

Past debts, discrimination and blind eyes,
now become an illumines trove,
all pain forgotten and forgiven.
