Angels
Don't always fly

     Sometimes,
  They flitter.

Tickle hint
  Near
     Your ear.

And,
   Wispy air
Spins
     Round your hair.

They giggle
just below hearing.

Gleeful
Vibrations

Delicately,
   Flit feather
Your face.

Just to let you know
They are near.
Hovering
Mother hens.

Their gossamer wings
     Touching you with
Softest Swishes
       Soothing cares caress.

Surrounding you
     In filmy fabric of
Finest woven love
       And protection.

They are always near.

Ssshhhh...

Be still.

And you can
Feel
Them

Flittering.
.

..without surrender, be on good terms with all persons..

now my heart's a flitter-flutter
this IS flying - I will utter
this is perfect warm as light
a magic soar of pure delight.
Kethry

Here in the midst of my lonely abyss, a single joy I find...your presence in my mind.  Unknown

Grinning here.......


Thanks to all of you for taking the time to read and reply.

Linda - Awake in mid. of my night and read a poem about an angel falling, splat! Though totally different kind of angel than referenced here....
it did cause me to write this poem.

And, I couldn't wait for you and Noah and couple others who are soooo into angels to read this. I knew what your reply would be like. Smiling......

This was written all in fun and meant to be whimsical...

Thanks again to all of you, Hugs, Pat

Oh Pat, you have outdone yourself with this mystical, whimsical piece.
I just love it. I always think I've been kissed by an angel
when I feel a slight breeze on my cheek.

Ssshhhh .... I am listening.  Hugs, Marti

I love this! I'm not sure wether to feel calm and relaxed, or excited!
these are my favorite lines:
Delicately,
   Flit feather
Your face.

so sweet!

Always, Alyssa

I thank God for these archived beauties~
Hoping they remain for all of time~
Pat, it is just such a pure pleasure to go back and find things I missed~

How very, very gentle are your poetic thoughts~
Sometimes, to know an angel up-close and personal ... is to know yourself very well~

God knows ... yes, He does~

Pat~
Letting you know that this beautiful poetic thought stayed with me all through my MRI's today~
I felt the 'gossamer wings' of my Mother's Spirit gently flittering around me~

Thank you, thank you, thank you for the never-ending prayers of comfort~
You've definitely lifted the flagging spirits of this lady~

I pray that I can continue in your dear friendship ... to lift you ... to hold your hand in this caring we have come to know~
You do not waver ... and for that I appreciate you more than you could know~
Bless you~
