dVerse — Quadrille 155 — Heaven’s Newest Angel

angel got her wings 

Petrichor cloud balloons bob
as the band tunes up; it’s time
to celebrate heaven’s newest
angel. She’s been orienting
for a few weeks and just
passed the fit-for-duty quiz.
She’s test-flying her wings;
landing is expected in five.
God always gets the first dance.

My mom passed away on June 21.  This is what I imagine she is doing right now.

    What a lovely vision you’ve created, Lisa. It made me smile. Sending you hugs. ❤️❤️ Perhaps your mother can get some advice from my mom. She’ll be there in a garden painting.

    Lil, I’m sorry to hear about you Mom. Losing a mother comes hard, it did to me. I felt as I now was an orphan, I’d had a Mom all my life before.
    You wrote a nice tribute to her, it helps us to know her better and for you to put her death in a little bit different light.
    May God continue to Bless you and Mom.
