Angel of the Evening Light

When all the sky is lavendar blue and the chill in the air goes through your coat, you can feel as if you are alone in the empty park. Then, you look up and see the silouhette of an angel standing guard in the middle of the sky! Solid and faithful, immovable and silent. Day in day out, watching in silence as time comes and goes again. Over a hundred years of people, skies, winds, leaves, snows, rains, sun, in a never ending parade of time. And now I am part of it all, wrapped up in the angels watch of the ages as I pass by too.
