Moonbeams


MOONBEAMS

a lull in the storm
clouds rearranged to surrender the captive one that had waned
since she last saw it

she gathered her courage
faced the risk
and climbed through the window to the porch roof beneath her

heart taking flight
she was the captive now
held by the absolute brilliance of yellow, matched only by her radiance

from among the angels
he kept his promise
to watch over her forever with every moonbeam

through their tears, he heard her utter his name
