Angles Come in Many Guises

Funny how the academic mind
does not believe in Angles

Maybe because the are stuck
with Kant's and Can’ts?

Still, angels come in many guises

It may be a soothing serenade

It may be a swaying palm
or even the scent of a Gardena

Perhaps a helping hand from a strange who held the door open for you

Or a kind word from the lady
you sat next to at the theater

Possibly it was the repairman that came on time
and fixed your machine as good-as-new in a few minutes
When everyone else said it was fit for the garbage

The baker, the fishmonger, the farmer
Everyone who meets and greets you

All Angels in a guise of color and costume

All angels in their own wholesomeness

And You!

You are an angle to six billion people
for your thoughts of joy flow into
the angel wave bands of every mind.

Friends …

There always seems to be a friend
that’s waiting ‘round, a road that bends
through twisted trails, of unknown woods,
where conscience questions all the “shoulds“!
And yet - the heart cannot be still
when love, o’errides controlling will.
Intentions seek another plan when
glimpse is caught, of out-stretched hand.
For who’s the fool, if ruled by bounds
and new day dawns or trumpet sounds?
When what has been is left behind
for what is now, that’s just as kind.
In innocence - a friendly way
to share of hope come ling’ring day,
while long the road, perhaps uphill;
In friendship shared - made shorter still.
For each new friend may come and go
And yet, in life somehow we know
those hours we walked and shared of glee,
or maybe shared of sympathy,
gave rise to thoughts, that couldn’t have been
had not we paused … to talk with them.
To all these friends I’ve come to know,
there’s always come a time to grow.
So - “all are one” in God, to me.
Grand giver of Life’s mysteries …
