Michaelmas 2016

I heard a whisper:
there are angels!

Six-winged spirits, holiness-heralds,
flames of fire, word-bearers:
the temple shakes...

But I have only heard a whisper
(of moving wings, or heavenly voice?)
and seen

(I know someone, who thinks she saw...
but far away, indistinct;
you couldn't be certain, really).

And everything seems
solid and

But the sky is sometimes full of whispers,
and I am weary of pretending
not to hear.
