Praises to the King.

I woke up this morning
To the sound of rushing waters 
like  waves roaring across the ocean floor.

Rigid with fear I stood transfixed
 and  watched as armies of angels
descended  from the heavens above.

The skies  shifted  
the universe trembled
by the torrents of angels in flight.

Amid the sound of blaring trumpets
and the dazzle of waving swords
their thunderous voices roared 
 accross the morning skies.

Michael and Gabriel archangels both
leading the Heavenly choir in songs of praise
God is great ..God is Love.

Eyes glistening with tears
My heart bursting with joy
I fell to my knees and joined in song.

 God is great ..God is love I sang
as I watched the angels depart
one by one.

    Margaret I hope you don't mind but it was in my third book I mentioned you as being perhaps the most spiritual lady I have ever met - You have a glow about you that shines across miles and I do still hope that one day we can meet face to face - I loved this poem and I love the lady who penned it - You are a blessing to me and I'm ashamed that I don't say it as often as I should - God Bless you my dear friend - Michael

    Thank you Margaret for your lavish praise of my poem Wink of Eyes. It is very heartwarming. I am obliged. I read your remarkable devotional poem Praises to the King. The poem is so beautifully crafted that the readers feel the presence of the Angels and join in the choir. Very impressive! -Mohammad

    Margaret I thank you for sharing such an awesome inspirational read; in form imagery and flow it tis truly outstanding :-) I believe that there is a small typo in fourth line of the first verse, "accross" should read as "across" still it is a wonderful write. God's Love and Many Blessings, Always, Adell
