Echoes of Angels


from far away a distant sound

familiar and warm


white noise


echoing a life

of voices lost

beckoning me


singing softly wondrous notes

walking amongst us

in various forms


ethereal footsteps


echoes from on high


of sunrise and sunset

moments of darkness and light

of stillness and quiet

gratitude and plenty


so still, I listen


and I hear the angels sing

    Maya Angelu`s (not sure if I spelled it right, but you know who I mean) position as poet laureate is in serious jeopardy if you ask me!

    This is a welcoming and caring example of how angels are in Heaven and on Earth. The poem was very special and lovely, thanks for this! Not only at Christmas, but angels surround us every day. The voices lost, to me are our loved ones that have gone before us… I love the message, my friend! Smiles, Robin

    • I’m baack! – after a construction emergency pulled me away. I actually had a real life angel experience. And while I believed before that encounter, my perspective on angels changed completely. Be well. ~Karen~

        I think this is astounding, Karen! You should post about your angel experience! I feel angels and magical love from God, pouring out every day. I have only had one special message, that came from that cardinal. I believe you read and we ‘talked’ about this before. I just noticed your construction emergency and hope your building plans are falling into place, wishing that you were seeing the ‘light at the end of the tunnel’ in your home! Would be so nice for you to ‘unpack your life’ (using your words on another post! Happy thoughts being sent on the wind towards you, Karen!

      • Thanks my friend! I will write about my angel experience in my book. I’ve actually had two – I feel very blessed to be “looked after” by them. Yes, I remember your cardinal! As for unpacking my life…I. can’t. wait. xo ~Karen~

You've stopped by my door, peeked in a bit; please leave a note and share your wit.
