Trudi haloed
the ones she loved
like God lit the angels on judgement day.
It was not that they had done no wrong.
It was that she loved them,
loved them without condition,
loved them beyond thought,
so she learned to lighten the area
around them, to brighten their darkness,
lighting their background so they glowed
ethereal with a shimmer of their own
that lit their steps,
smoothed the wilderness paths
before them.

--Mikal Lofgren

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY to all my haloed ones! May the shimmer of your halos light your steps and smooth the wilderness paths before you all!
