Heaven's War 2 (short version for challenge)

Wings spread my body dances through the cool night air. I feel the rush of the wind against my face as I spin, twirl and dance upon the current between the clouds. The moon glistens on the ripples of the ocean below beaming blue tremors of light. I imagine the twinkle in your eye. Quivering with anticipation I reach down and run my fingers through the white tipped waves and feel the salty water spray against me. I rotate my weary body allowing the tips of my wings to fall into the cool blue water. As I approach the beach my feet fall hard upon the soft sand, my tattered wings extend to brace me from falling. I take a deep breath and begin to run towards the white porch in the distance. I hear your laughter as I clamber up the wooden steps one by one. Two long years I was trapped in the solitude of war, longing for this moment. As I reach for the handle the door creaks open and I gaze upon your face beaming in the moonlight. You softly touch the edge of my sleeve and I fall face first into the ruffles of your worn shirt. The smell of your warmth circles the edges of my nose as I embrace you. I look into your eyes and see my reflection capturing the moment. Your lips press against mine and I melt into you. Worn by my travels my body begins to fall, you sweep me from my feet and into your arms. Together, entwined, worn old wings draped around you I softly whisper, “I’m Home” and nestle my head into your chest. You place another kiss upon my lips and I know that this isn’t the end of my journey it is the beginning.
