A. H. Scott: Angel Light

Family Album


Photography and Text by A. H. Scott, Copyright 2017


As I walked past my mother’s bedroom late afternoon yesterday, my eyes were attracted to something I was surprised at seeing. It was a tiny patch of sunshine upon the edge of her bed.


Mother’s Bedroom


I stood silent, but began to smile to myself. In that snap of a second in time; a miracle of karma, remembrance and just an unseen gift from the heavens was allowed me by my eyes seeing that sight.

 I couldn’t let the image pass without capturing it. And, the inspiration for the poem titled, “Angel Light” flowed through me.






Just us three

My Dad, my Mom, and Me

Life’s hourglass shifted

Just us two

My Mom and Me

Shift of hourglass came last year once more

Now, it’s just me

Aspects of my Dad and my Mom are seen in me through the eyes of my family

Vocal similarity of my Mom is heard across a telephone line

Chubby cheeks of my Dad is seen within family members’ eyes

For me, it’s the essence of these two remarkable souls that I embrace in living memory

Then, like a sign from heaven above, I saw you once more

And, there it happened as I walked past Mom’s open bedroom door

Comforting light of joy that cradled my core

With their angel light flickering forever bright inside of my heart; the light of love which they selflessly gave me came from this baby’s first breath from the start

Angel light…..gratitude eternal
