Grateful, but perhaps a little wary

deep inside
there is an angel
who is grateful
but perhaps
a little wary
of the gifts that come her way;
but poised to run
if any more come falling down;
feeling a bit weighed down
by the cross around her neck,
as if to say
that's not quite what she meant
when she mentioned
that she thought
those beads were pretty
and now she feels all tangled up
and wishes she weren't
anchored to the floor...

Wonderful photo. I can understand how that little angel feels. Sometimes I get tangled up in my feelings about religious rituals and doctrines. I love your work! So glad I found you! hugs, pat
