Freedom

For Prompt #45 at The Sunday Muse. Image “Be Free” by Magic Love Crow.

Line by line the silhouette
of an angel rises up,
phoenix-like, in the space
where the prophet’s finger
parts the sand.
This is what freedom is-
the delirious joy
of walking away
from the baying crowd,
the space between the lines
as alive as the lines.
