Half an Angel

Another poem thumping on my mind lately, finally taking form.

Only half an angel
  Wings gray in grit and grime
Been to heaven seldom
  Ground below most the time
Gawking green at full brethren
  Who grace the sky with ease

Now and then God please
  Gives a mighty gust:
Spread wings, take flight
  Sun on my feathers
Reflects, not white, but
  the whole iridescence of light
