Angela’s Poem

charlotte Nov

letting moments like this slip
regales a dream’s allure
insubstantial drifts of form are
sure as melody to inner ear

thoughts are clear and echo
in the bells’ carillon clarity of
massed accord – resonate to
peerless themes of simple call    

wonderment entrapped in family
gauze has kept this seemly state
attentive to each living breath –
and that’s the awe

your caring words are piety to
void the sphere of blasphemy
epithets of selflessness are 
where I’ll make accord
