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
