Personal Notes on Angels
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!
