Angel Boy

By jools59  
Angel Boys

angel boys and innocent
inside their world of line on line
as thin as paper and as black as ink
a world outside of time
inside their world are boys
and boys with wings
- and things -
and secret quiet smiles
why do they smile
the boys
the angel boys
the boys with wings
why do they smile?
there is a secret in the air
the white all around them air so thin
a secret that you saw once
in the face of a Kouros
in the face of the Pharaoh at Luxor
or the angel of the meridian
on the cathedral at Rouen
the ever-smiling angel
gently nodding to the sun
to the still and gentle sun
a secret upon the air
as soft as pollen as the summertime begins
upon the air and everywhere
the great unspoken secret
an open secret
that boys have wings

Very effective,wings look excellent,I actualy like the edging around the figure..sort of ethreal glow if you like..could be worth exagerating it (diffuse it) and add a hint of a halo to boot.....aNGLE OF THE HEAD IS GREAT AGAINST THE WINGS...opps caps again
