Personal Notes on Angels

entry picture

I don't know any angels.

Not like the ones in the Bible.

But I have met some who must be.


They have helped me walk through underlying worlds

of pain and decay just under the surface

of all the beauty I see in another sunrise.


And to appreciate the wonder I've felt

being next to those that have no wings or halos

or other decorations to show me.


I don't ever recall a biblical angel

speaking to me, or even trying

in some enlightened way.

Maybe I wasn't listening,

or maybe faith didn't want to bother.


The touchable angels I've known,

the ones without fairytale stories

and gossamer robes, have been there for me

in the broke-down times I've needed them.

Thank you Mike.
I've never seen an angel with wings either; but there are plenty out there disguised as humans, that's for sure; I know that from personal experience; and they're often the people you'd least expect!
