  • Shelter Under a Tree
    by Misty Posey

    The sky was the strangest shade of yellow,
    A golden color tinted by grey and brown.
    Her wings drooped,
    Limp beside her frail form
    Crouched close to the weedy ground.
    Her shoulder burdened the weight of her body against a stout tree,
    Its bark rough against her sheer wing.
    The green, leafy branches were long,
    Camouflaging the bent figure from her pursuers.
    Her eyes fixated on the rich sky,
    A golden reflection colored her ivory skin,
    Waning hope weighed heavily around her eyes.
    She beckoned the sky for her savior,
    Yet none had arrived.
    Her soiled face, child-like and smooth
    Dropped with her wings, exhausted
    "Hold on," she told herself.
    An olive-green glow emanated from her body and wings
    Her fingers just reaching the roots along the tree's base
    Desperately drawing from its sacred strength,
    "Hold on..."
