An Angel Flowers Task: Comfort a Child

An Angel Flowers Task: Comfort a Child

Abbey needed help.
Her nightly dreams about angels
convinced her one could make her well.
Maybe forever, maybe for just a while.

She shouted at the springtime sky,
hoped an angel would hear.
Instead she conjured a Golem.
He couldn’t cure Abbey
so he decided to bring her an angel.

The Golem created a kaleidoscope
of flowers in a park where the child often rested.
He persuaded the wind to twirl,
bend, loop, weave through the blooms,
freeing petals to play in the air, form shapes.

Apple Blossoms fabricated fluttering wings.
Crocus and Hyacinth designed
a diaphanous robe that danced
around a lithe body of stems and leaves.
A rainbow of Tulips molded a face
with a mesmerizing smile, tender eyes.

The Golem’s angel found Abbey
sitting on a bench and enveloped
the little girl in her velvety wings,
healing, consoling, loving her.

As he sank into the arms of soil nearby,
the Golem knew Abbey’s memories
of this angel would be a balm,
ease symptoms, effects, treatments.
Maybe forever, maybe for just a while.
