“Angel among us”

“The statuesque figure before me glistened in the morning sun.  I was certain

that this monument, this figure, could be of no one else but Aphrodite, Goddess

of Love, for no other could hold such beauty in such a small, elegant form.  Her

hair was of golden amber, extending beyond the waist.  The skin, of the purest

white marble flowed smoothly and elegantly across slender sloping shoulders down

to long, toned legs.  Slight ruby lips pursed slightly, as if kissing the new

day opening before her.  Completing this monument to unparalleled beauty was a

pair of the most brilliant sapphires, surely plucked from the most intense

burning stars of the night, placed gently into her eyes, which turned and were

fixated at me.  I felt as a man surely did before the face of God, as if I would

simply be turned to dust before such magnificence and be blown away as dust in

the wind.  I was certain that this figure, as still as she was, was certainly a

statue, for surely nature could not create such a heavenly form with its wild,

groping hands.  That is, until this goddess took in a slow, deep breath of the

new morning air, allowing it to slowly fill her lungs with it’s purity before

letting it flow out once again.  Truly I have died, I thought, and this is an

angel before, for a creature of such indescribable beauty could not exist in the

world that I know.  The angel seemed to almost hover off the ground as her eyes

met mine.  Or perhaps, her angelic magic was causing me to be the one to float

towards her?  But here in this moment, I could be certain of nothing.  For in

this moment, I could not tell up from down, left from right.  The angel’s

crimson lips curled upwards slightly into a smile before speaking in a soft

voice that rippled in my soul like a stone thrown into a pond.  “Welcome home.” 

I could not move, could not breathe.  The angel before me, noticing my

expression, laughed slightly at my plight.  I only managed to force a slight nod

before I began my long uphill climb, up to where this angel awaited me.”
