My Journey to God

Tradition in November

… And as I stood by looking on,
that heaven-sent, cherub angel flitted
among the communion of saints,
littering their final resting place
with giggles … and blessings … and fall colored
unaware that her innocence and faith
opened the portals of heaven and called forth
eternal compassion and protection from those
who have gone before her.
