Autistic angels

Some autistic angels tread on earth

And all those whose lives flow clean

Take notice and help them and their parents.

The time-worn stones smile at them

And the moon flaps her wings to show her love.

When I see an enigmatic smile on the lips

Of a non-verbal autistic angel,

Surges of joy rise in my heart.

I hold his hand and all my senses

Feel the positive energy flowing in his veins.

I look into his eyes and I see

Reflections of the cosmos in colors magnificent.

All my sorrows melt like mounds of snow

And I am slowly transported in his world,

A world of innocence, charms and beauties unparalleled.

I no longer oscillate between doubt and despair,

I feel new vistas opening, overflowing

All the cells of my body with love.

For hours, we hold mute conference

And we feel so enlivened, so enriched.

It is a blessing to have an autistic angel.

The pen metamorphoses into a brush

And the brush into a pen.

They are so eye-opening, a vortex of peace

Where there is no place for rivalry,

Division and sub-division ending in war.

Let our colors flow into the colors

Of autistic angels who are so often misunderstood.

Life is a journey and in innumerable guises

Autistic angels portray the reasons for living,

A life full of love, compassion and forgiveness and understanding.
