2014 April PAD Challenge: Day 8

I'm continuing my haiku story based on Poetic Asides Poem-A-Day prompts.

Today's prompt is here.

Eight days, eight haiku.

beyond the welkin
a sleepy angel awakes
off to work wings brushed

the commute is quick
one giant leap for mankind
for angel one step 

the task is simple
persuade men to be happy
that's what angels do

since the creation
happiness has been men's foe
men prefer ruin 

men long for passion
harmony unsettles them
men would rather burn

men inhale cities
drink beneath the rural moon
on the airplane wings 

ever amateur
created in God's image
hopelessly human 

torment their lovers
dance themselves to destruction
ever lonely men

To be continued tomorrow...

Live for the Love of it,
The Happy Amateur
