Snow Angels
Nancy Machlis Rechtman


Glistening specks float down from the clouds
In a gossamer dream
Tenderly caressing the earth
Like a motherís love
Landing like a kiss
Beckoning me to sink onto their pillowy softness
With a sigh
And eyes that flutter shut
Where I can make angels
Who might carry me
Back to the stars -
Or sleep.
