Tags: memories

The night had hung a full moon over the arbor's gate

as the shadows migrate beneath trellises of wild roses 

and I saw an angel in my dreams

as granny sang me lullabies as her tears flowed

over empty teacups and her cuddle-ups 

the night grandpa didn't come home

but an angel danced in soft shoes 

in a plate of grits and red-eye gravy

as night hung a full moon over the arbor's gate

making it squeak
