Encounter

Encounter


a chance encounter
in the space around five pieces of German glass


in a great hall
full of light


soft countenance
at peace, finally


a banner as blue as spring sky
below a gentle smile
confident pose


the song of precisely
forty angels
all about
her angels
unseen, everywhere
they'd always been


found in that moment
of new acquaintance


and as one walked away
the other stayed
all the while smiling
angels singing still


five pieces of German glass
