I was taught..
that I was born..
descending from the dark..
womb of mother in a rush of blood…
An slippery body in shivering..
brutally deprived of warmth..
without a rythm…a paceful walk…
tiny heart uncompassed..
tiny world as a budding rose..
promise of blooming..
scents of heaven and fading thorns..
Since then…
I have dreamed about an unwinged angel..
prancing and dancing on her toes..
Descending from equal darkness..
an stair of innocence engraved in names..
I have been called since from..

She illuminates my darkness..
as a lazy lightingbug…
lost in the grassy pathway..
cold at touch.. and vibrant at show.

She is not winged…
nor I am..
for what i recall..
but is as ethereal as the odours..
sensual presence of the world..
outside and inside her soul..
I would say.. she is my unwinged essence..
just before the heavy lids of dormants..
tried to close mine… intimate core.

Little Angel in my rescue..
flesh and spirit..
guided by the Light..which is always at hand..
when one sees through it…
darkness… mother´s womb.

    I like it very much Rosa… this is actually a continuum of “unwinged angels” leaving a trail of unspoken beauty of soul.

  • Thanks a lot… really..
    The images become forgotten, now she is revived, though in my heart always there, giving me lightness of heart.
    There are… angels like these one.
    Have a hug.

  • Thank you helene…..
    Me gusta que alguien…lea lo que escribo…. con un poco de interés y amor.
    It is easy to get oneself be impressed by a visual image….such is the reaction of the Soul to symbology…and not so being impressed even interested about writing which requires first of all an interest.. a will… a submitting of our intelect to what we read and an open heart for reading it inside our own.
    I appreciate so then… very much, the fact that some one may have the heart and mind to stop and read some of my poems.
    Thanks have a hug helene.

    Me encanta Rosa….
    Inmediatamente se me vino a la cabeza esta imagen…. sin alas… (yo que siempre me rodeo de plumas y alas)…

    Un beso

  • Me encanta que te encante….
    a veces…. me acuerdo de que algunas “almitas” están sin mostrar en algun sitio… y bueno, si gustan… me alegro por ellas y por mí.
    Me gusta mostrarlas…. porque todo se pierde, con una rapidez vertiginosa.
    Te veo…. carita de angel….
    Te espero…sin plumas.
    Un beso
