when two year old

what she wants-

and he remembers

confidences he had

with his Papa

cotton robes

cotton pants

bikes in mountains

tricks of chance

that’s what angels are.

pants fall down

wings rise up

spirit moves

in golden cup

that’s what angels do.

grandma’s gems

grandpa’s joy

sibling’s rival

angel’s toy

that’s what angels give.

Nelson Mandela:
 “I have fought against white domination and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.”Feb 11, 1990
