Perilous Edge


Judy Walker

Rain - A thousand weeping angels spilling tears
for those who can't.
Challenging us...
To emerge and taste its sweetness
to be cleansed
to mourn lost souls
and also to weep our own tears among theirs.
Much like an enchanting fire;
Pixies' hands reaching out to entwine with ours.
Seducing us... into their realm of fantasy
taunting us... with their innocent smiles,
we walk around the Perilous Edge, contemplating
the gifts they hold in their hands.
Do we step into the enchantment and risk...
what may never truly be ours?
