Angels everywhere
All that was upside down, turned
They watch over us
Gods small miracle workers

Angel Kisses

Snowflakes so silently fall

Like Angel kisses

Winters breath upon my face

Their departure traced

Angels See

On a window sill

          sits an angel watching

                                  seeing us all pray

          as we hold hands together

                               the angel fly's to Heaven.

- Gentle Wings -

                                       Grief can swallow you
                               Soft tears of love from your heart
                                          Memories to keep
                                 Pearl drops falling from the sky
                                         Eternity has no end

Cloud Watching

passing clouds
and suck sprigs of sweet grass 
looking up
at the puffy cloud angels
barnstorming so far above

Earth Angels

earthly angels
strolling in the mortal realm
rubbing elbows
with rich and poor alike
inspiring hope within

Angelic She

Noised silence pulls me in a broken wilderness I drift amidst time circumnavigating what this dark abyss beckoning Suddenly, a light out of the black I appear into a blue day Angelic she, I've been found my dark abyss, now silenced .

Hard Workers

Flying souls, adrift in a sea of silver clouds. Their wings brushing God, carrying prayers to Heaven; messengers for the faithful.

Angel of Love

Life’s blood out of stone
the old veins penetrated
yet fears losing you,
a renewal a license
for happiness oh so late!

Like An Angel

Shimmery wings spread

Golden halo on her head

She captures my heart

her aura so dazzling bright

she bestowes a peaceful smile

An Angel In Disguise

Always wearing white,
Who knew she was an angel?
Her friends had no clue,
But one day she flew away,
Higher than than the planes she flies.

Crying Holy Unto My Lord

near the throne of God
heaven’s Seraphim angels
crying,  “ holy  Lord”
rid    undesirable  weeds
tears  spring   nurturing garden

Messengers of Heaven

                     With or without wings
              From the white clouds of heaven
                      They watch over us 
                 In the most happy moments 
                 And in the life saddest days

Poetic Angel

Little angel smiles
Holds the world in tiny hands
Sings new golden songs
Sent especially by Him
To make world a better place

Jostle in the rain,with feverfew-

Back in those days. who 
broke your wings that now on, though 
you are healed at last,
you cannot even bear the
sweet thought of flying itself?

Advice to an Angel

With your angel face
Be as cunning as the fox
The heaven will laugh
When you shall ascent the mount
As the lion of the Sky

Angel's prisoner

Angelic creature
Imprisoned by your beauty
In chains I hobbled
Spewing darkness from the soul
Cleansing myself to be yours

No angel

Floating on a cloud
Every word you say is white
But your eyes are black
My dear, you are no angel,
Even if you dress as one

Some birds flew through air
making a clean hollow path
the sun shifts away
soapy spongy white clouds
wash clear the blue faced bright sky

This is the best time
to write a letter to GOD
on HIS holy THRONE
in HIS great mighty PALACE
visitors are purified.

dear LORD in heaven
the poors are crowned with sufferings
sickness eats our health
our pots are lonely for food
thirst plant weeds in our throats

corruption, here, there
gayism is now a pride
lesbianism grows
our rights are flowing away
look upon us with mercy

Darkness is now light
our hearts are feeding on spikes
tears now bloor our eyes
the righeous men are suffering
evil men are enjoying.

Tankas on tankas
how many shall i so use
to explain my view
which is dying and breathing
save us GOD, fro great darkness.

Tanka like

We the classless
seek no revolution, only fairness.
We like quality
a well- balanced diet
And cold German pilsner.
The stinking rich,
one assumes they do not have bath often,
can continue to pong.
We seek no egalitarianism
but cold German lager
and a comma -less life.
