Fallen Angel: Haiku Friday

Fallen Angel
What felled this angel?
Love gone awry or something

What evil came to pass?

Soundlessly she fell
earth-bound. What bested her strength?
A heavenly wind.

If you think she looks bad, you should see the decapitated penguin beside her. A bit of haiku fun for a Friday.

[Make sure you check out Haiku Friday's home for more ku.]
