2 Poems by Michael Keshigian


There is the ample door
to heaven
we anticipate to pass through
after a lifetime of good
and there is the blue heron
that bathes and stalks
a secluded pond
for sanctuary.


Though no wind passes,
a harmonious ringing
breaking silence.
Dangling lines
of pewter angels
fly in circular motion,
playing  harps
and kissing softly
to disrupt
the day’s stoic countenance
with celestial sounds
kindled by the breaths
of caring spirits
who stopped by
to whisper hello.
