Incident in the Orchard

Gentle creature
so pale in the moonlight
How come you to this place

Shattered crystal butterfly
leaning against a peach tree in bloom
A statue awash in lingering lunar light
Fair alabaster hand aglow
Lady of the Land of Light
walking in Darkness

Gentle one
Let me tell you a story
Of a crazed and blind angel
a creature of exquisite face
and brilliant energies
A beautiful Fiend
An unknowing creature
living in a murderous land . . .
