The Sleep of Angels

Featured on


Babies breath

Spouted pure

Released and sent adrift


Nightly death

Engulfing vapour

Sweeps into the rift


Mimicry crowds

An age old ploy

Assigning sheep a number


Cotton clouds

Softened with joy

In readiness of slumber


Let rhythm follow

Of images known

Coalesced in tangled streams


Trust in Apollo

The guidance shown

Winged to the gateway of dreams


A Patient lover

God’s grace captured

Vigilant however painful


A Watchful mother

Stares enraptured

At the face of her own angel
