Practices the archer,
Alongside the mechanical skills –
So necessary –
But mostly the waiting.
These tiny perfect angels,
Suspended on gossamer, begin
To turn careful candle-driven carousel:
Seeming to hover on fine
Heaven- in-a-moon moth wings,
Law and Education.
Spinning points of a
Holy Season Compass
They delicately describe
The circles of life.
One holds out a candle:
Light into the Dark World,
Another a book:
A third, almost-partner,
A tree: beneficent nature
The last … ?
Turning its back to my eyes
I am momentarily unable to see
What it will offer mankind –
… yet I notice on it’s perfect back
Of jealous Satan’s beckoning flames.
