Angel Halo

Such fragile construction,

this whisper-thin membrane

between you and the Light.

Nothing robust here.

You cannot boast of a strength of your own making.


your veins revealing the life-pulse beating in their wispy confines,

you boldly invite Sun into your membranes.

It captures your whole, and,

radiating within,



weaving a texture through your substance,

baptizes you with

angel halo…

“My power is all you need.  My power works best in weakness.”  II Corinthians 12:9 NLT

  1. Very pretty. My favorite part: “you boldly invite Sun into your membranes.”

  2. Remarkable word choice and, i agree, great use of personification. I can close my eyes and feel and see the sensations.

  3. whisper thin…like the veil between one reality and another

  4. Great poem very descriptive of the photo.
    And the purple color highlights the “halo” of light.
    Nice shot; thanks for the post. 😉
