The Breath of Angels

Sacred is the night
As whispered prayers
Rise to meet the sparkling of diamonds
Sprinkled along the path of shadows

Bowed before the sacred saints
On bent knees of perdition
Pardon is chanted within the hush
Of dimly lit corners where incense burns
A vapor of supplication

    I like the imagery embedded in your stanzas and how the picture embellishes them. 🙂
