Spirit Wings
Please Click Link above to hear music and my voice recording.

Music: ďAngels of DawnĒ by Dik Darnell
From the album entitled: In the Presence of Angels

    

Spirit Wings
by Linda L. Dowd

I leapt from a mountain and into the air,
~ Flapping my arms on a wing and a prayer.
I was lost and lonely and deep in despair,
As I plunged toward earth in a living nightmare.

In but an instant, I was bathed in Godís Light.
I tingled all over at the bedazzling sight ~
Of angels aglow in colors vividly bright,
~ Azure, and amethyst ~ petal pink, and snow white.

My spirit rose up to the heavens above.
I was wrapped in the warmth of Mother Godís Love.
I passed Pearly Gates on angel wings of a dove,
And now joyously recall that moment thereof.

The air was scented by a fresh, lilac breeze.
And songbirds sang merrily from burgeoning trees.
Crystal clear waters did calmingly please,
As life flowed effortlessly with grace and with ease.

When I leapt from that mountain in rudderless twirl,
~ My faith was restored with wings in awhirl.
That grand leap of faith caused spirit wings to unfurl,
And into the heavens flew this born-again girl.

I now soar with the eagles above Mother Earth,
~ Since that moment divine of my spirit's rebirth.
Iím brimming with confidence and esteemed self-worth.
I am hopeful, and joyful, and flushing with mirth.

I had leapt from a mountain and into the air.
~ Flapping my arms on a wing and a prayer.
I was lost and lonely and deep in despair.
Now I radiate love and have not a care.

Yo dear Linda,

This is very nice.  That all seems easy enough.

Good afternoon, dear Bobby!

It was good to hear from you! Thank you for the "nice" reply!

Yes, it can be "easy" (or at least 'easier') if we keep the faith and keep our proverbial wings flapping like a bat outta hell!!!! lol

Love & Light,
Linda

Dear Angelo Terrestre, what you convey here so beautifully, really leaps off the page right into my heart, where it brings warmth and light and joy, along with the soft tune and the angelic voice of yours!

A wonderful work, dear heart.

Love and hugs.

Maga Margherita ~

Good evening to you, dear Cosmic Princess over there in "Eternity".

A poem of mine without a warm reply from you would be like apple pie without cheese and a kiss without a squeeze!

Thank you so much for the cheese and the squeeze!

Hot Flakes ~

Greetings, ofttimes I have leapt with only a wing and a prayer, and I haven't met my demise yet! ~ at least in this lifetime!

As always, I appreciate you dropping by!

Take care, my friend!

lady linda,

your help me float through water and air,

without a care.

dropping like rain on god's green earth,

seeing a angel's birth,

unicorn's dance and prance with delight, all

on a wonderous night. rainbow angel makes

colors in light... by kerri

lovely poem miss linda... joy to read!

Dear Linda, who is fairer and more loving than you, no one I propose.

How I did without your lovely words for so long is beyond me.

My heart if full now, and rejuvinated.

Happy Valentines Day my dear.
