The Angels came today

This poem is about a mystical experience I had whilst walking the wetland trails one day.


Angels came today

I think my angels came today
They stayed with me a while
Young Michael well he made me laugh
He really made me smile.
He made me happy with his ways
As he made my old feet dance
It seems he’d make me act the fool
Any time he got a chance’

He came with me on the wetland trails
He had a sense of humor
They say he really plays that horn
Perhaps it’s just a rumor!
He made me dance along those paths
Put lightness in my feet
And then came Angelique too
Oh she was very sweet.

Angelique, wondrous angel
Did hold me in her gaze
It seemed that she will always try
Some pain then to erase
Her eyes were lovely mystic blue
All love, and rich compassion
As she glided into me
In an angel kind of fashion.

I know not if these feelings felt
Were the play of restless mind
Or if these two indeed were angels
And yet they seemed so kind.
They gave me laughter
Gave me love
And I hope we meet again
For I felt within their blessed presence
The absence of all pain.

    Hi Peter, I Loved this one my Friend, so simple, gentle and flowing, just add music to it and off we go.Wait a minute, what would Vera be doing while you're cavorting with Angels? I was along right from the start on this one also. I could almost here a tune inside my head as your words meandered along the page as you walked. It's always so easy to picture your words Peter. You never over elaborate with your scenes and I Love that. Wishing you and Vera all the best from Scotland....MIKE.
