One of my all-time favorite photographs, "Angel on Bicycle," was taken by Josef Koudelka. The first time I came across it, it stopped me cold. "What a hoot!" I thought. I found it delightfully humorous, but, the more I looked at it, the sadder it became. You can view it here.
Now that I'm working on angel poems, I knew I had to pay tribute to the photograph and the photographer.

You can't see it from the portion of the angel in the illustration, but, if you look at the original photo, you'll find the angel wears sneakers...which puts me in mind of Elvis Costello:
If I had used the whole angel, I would have tinted his sneakers red!
The Round-Up for this week is being hosted by Kimberley.
Next week, I'll take a break from angels! So please come back.
