Attendants of God
Protect us with compassion
Celebrating love

Descend from heaven
Pure celestial images
Harmonious glow

Silent messengers
Arrive in our time of need
Guide us into light

Illuminate dark
Bright divine affinity
Innocent nature

Some walk amongst us
Spiritually uplift
Invisible wings

back in sixty-nine
awed by Victoria Station
my first trip abroad

she came up to me
old, frail and helpless looking
struggling with her case

woman in distress
hesitant, asking for help

her mind set at rest
with a reassuring smile
her quandary solved

while boarding her train
with tears in her eyes she said
you are an angel

My Freeway Angel Caught between two cars There was no lane between them Who guided my hand? Steering crazily back and forth between them both It was harrowing At another time I was sideswiped by a rig on that same freeway My car went sideways to the front of a man’s truck I had no control I was being pushed as the trucker slowed his pace in his middle lane Before the truck stopped I wondered is this the end? I felt strangely calm My car then emerged faced against the traffic but on the embankment A few other times my tires had big bad blowouts I came out unscathed I’ve stayed uninjured through all my mishaps but not so lucky - my cars! Have I been lucky or is a freeway angel looking after me? For the Senryu on Angels Poetry Contest of Marvin Celestial True story written with senryu syllable count. I would like to think I have an angel, but I can't really say for sure! Contest Description: 1 original, poem on the theme of true encounters with Angels Only Senryu form will be accepted with the title "Angel / Angels."

my mother, my angel

when I am weeping
I feel a hand stroke my hair-

          from her lonely grave

First Place

I dedicate this poem to my mother. She was the best Mom a girl could ever ask for.
She was not just a mother but my very best friend.  It was me who had to make the
decision in the end to unplug the life support.  It shattered me, but I knew it is what
my mother would have wanted, she was full of happiness and laughter, she was 
totally different from me.  I am always full of sadness and grief.

in search of a Rose.

by digital light
they hovered and poured pure hate
down over my bed

hung the advisors
selling sammy’s letter to 
a christian nation

of gods and portals
opened when I closed the book
and peeked into worlds

a hair’s width away
from my face they pressed hard for
another mistake

doubt stabbed my recall
of passages and preachers
in this kind of fight

would they not give chase
fear stumbles a femur snaps
to put me back down

reduced my weapons
to decorative clutter
in that old farmhouse

The Holy Ghost spoke
told me not to engage them
extended his hands

slowly closed my eyes
blurred vision of Christ who stood
by his Father’s throne

and before any
of minute’s measures of time
three demons were gone

calling from the bush
to a stuttering Moses
"H-h-h-ere I a-am," he said

and the voice replied:
"I have a mission for ya,
hope you like manna."

a man of service,
perfectly moulded by thoughts
that deem worthy life.

a blossomed leader
with his seasoned words and deeds
raised on the summit.

shout a word; he discovers,
make a step; he builds.

Come Back Undercover Angel

Let me see your eyes
My love's in your reflection
Won't you please come back?

Where are you tonight?
My undercover angel
Won't you please come back?

I am all alone
Oh please keep me company
Won't you please come back?

                                                   when I lie to sleep
                                          thoughts of angels in heaven
                                                   flicker in my dreams

                                                   holding hands we fly
                                        above the clouds to great heights
                                                    surveying dear lives

                                                   my subconscious gets
                                            embedded with their whispers 
                                                      to elongate hands

                                                      when eyelids open
                                            the winds push me to salt lakes  
                                                        to saturate tears

                                                        my divine angels

Night I Saw The Light

Pain felt heart beats fast
Perspiration is clinging
I see light in dark

The light sings glory
Angel voices sing for me
Melodies of Love

Then before my eyes
A beauty of the divine
The light shines so bright

Angel standing proud
Sublimity shining here
Angel of Mercy

God's divine does shine
Love's smile bestowed upon me
You tell all is well

My clammy hand clasped
Such peace and joy i do feel
Within me her light

Angel divine come
When in God's Love you have come
Come to take me home

Come to give me hope
Beauty of the cosmos now
A passion of peace

Love stays through the night
Come morning they operate
Angel's Love in me

Her peace i now know
I hold in memory the
Night i saw the light
