Oh how I love the lemon light of night….this is a rich piece, Margo. I’m so glad you are writing to the wordles. This falls into place like the words were meant to be ordered that way. There is no falseness forced.

Thank you, Brenda! I forgot to mention I changed yellow to lemon because my brain saw lemon from the first. I am looking forward to visiting your site and participating. Even if my brain doesn’t come up with a poem I shall visit others to read and enjoy.

A window opens
in Heaven’s door
as angels gather
to defend,in the waning
yellow light contrasting
colors of life rearrange
for absolute srrender, a
mystic lull fills the celestial
void before the final risk
no utterance just faith and
acceptance beneath the martyrs
wait ,for the Flight to descend.
m, you have written a deeply effective poem-I tried to find a poem, hope you will review -a

I particularly like the line “contrasting/colors of life” and the final stanza. I am able to picture the whole scene. If you enjoy doing the wordles I’ll have the link every week, Anjum.

I am your student Dear Ma’am .Thank you for the appreciation.Over the years I have identified myself as a freestyle writer. I definitely achieve better results if I am more focused . I can write with given word lists , as in 3 word poetry challenges I have won distinctions but at times I do feel stressed if I have to meet a deadline but then…I guess there reside the twins-Oh Dear Ma’am I need you surely…please go ahead with the weekly link …

Gorgeous, Margo. I am so happy I didn’t miss this. Instinct told me to go back, and see who else posted for last week, and there you were. Yay!
29/05/2011 at 5:32 pm
Thank you, Pamela. I will try to post a little earlier next time. I do love it when a wordle comes together and am so glad to have found this site.

This is wonderful, Margo.
“Souls are surrendered
and lives are rearranged.”
Thanks, Mary. I think those are my favourite lines.

the concept of ‘ last prayers’ is also very effective deep and realistically striking in your poem M -‘ with so many young being martyred in this strange war, poetry also has its effects-‘I wrote some lines with a title’The Last Glance’ will send you the link -soon

This poem reminds me of the movie: ‘City of Angels’ and that angels are far more present than we realise.

Thank you for your comment, Elizabeth. I agree with you and like the allusion to City of Angels.

I’m impressed how you’ve managed to create both a narrative and some lovely images in this poem, which is also such a straightforward and complete response to the prompt.

Thank you, Matthew. It is what I like best about wordles: my brain sees the words almost in stanzas and then the idea comes. I liked this one, I confess.
30/05/2011 at 10:12 am
Margo, this is lovely. I like “angel flights gather” – that is such a striking image. Nicely structured stanzas – and that last stanza is such a beautiful ending.
30/05/2011 at 10:18 am
Thank you so much, Richard. I am wrestling with this week’s wordle, so I don’t post quite so late. I am enjoying leavening my usual writing, which can take a long time, with the wordles, which give immediate inspiration.

Oh how I wish your angels would get a move on and stop all those earthly fights. Lovely use of the wordle words.
30/05/2011 at 1:32 pm
I know, Viv. They aren’t doing a whole lot of good just waiting, are they? And, thank you.

Angels above to the left to the right , all over and beneath
Ordained eternally alight in regions of sorrow and
darkness visible, in waning yellow light, gathering to protect
risk takers in desperate dangerous plight, in utter silence
surrendering, rearranging ranks multitudinous, amidst
absolute lull as vast windows extend their heavy frames
boundless from edge to edge swing wide for the host
of a hundred thousand grand, as upright they rise
on a mission to end the horrible futile earthly fight
to begin their final move , the long awaited sacred flight

Angels elsewhere and here. Life would not be the same without them. Your descriptive words play on one another and give meaning to something more. Nicely written.

There is something special about angels, isn’t there? I, like you, have an eclectic belief system, but they all seem to include angels. Thank you, Renee, for your kind words.
