"How Angels Fledge" by Jane Lebak

Jane Lebak specializes, it seems, in writing about things angelic (and often speculative).

Her poem "How Angels Fledge" was chosen as an honorable mention in DKA's first poetry contest.

It begins:



I beheld God in full,
Eye to eye, witness to Creation.
But wrenched from the grasp of glory,
The itching in my heart
Compelled me into the gusts of time.
July first, if I'd kept track of days.
I landed and found you: New. Needy.
And me: Warm. Protective. Fierce.
Guardian?
Guardian?
Guardian--me. After so long, me and you.
