A White Feather

cyanotype print with a white feather against dark blue background
Floating through the blue sky 
A sign from an angel
Passing through the sunlight
Sparkling as it does 
Like a star falling from the heart of the universe 
Coming from the wings of a Dove 
The couriers of Heaven
Birds that travel for miles 
Through rain and chaotic winds
Their wings never faltering as they flap for hours,
Bones blessed by love and grace 
A miracle of physics 
Determined to deliver 
Long white feathers 
To those who have lost hope
As a reminder that they are never alone.
