Fluttering Wings

I would like to thank each and every one of my hub friends who have shared, commented, voted on my Soaring Wings angel book collection since this spring. I really appreciate it and keep it coming. Since I’ve joined HP almost a year ago, you’re all angels to have as friends and had welcomed me into the HP community. I apologize for any grievances on my repeated forum questions for a certain hub that I’m working on as well this week. Answered Prayers was my 2nd angel chapbook I wrote, a decade ago. I still haven’t found those two angel quotes from my previous angel collection for SW3—I’ll keep looking and will update, if I ever do find it. I don’t know what happened to it. Stay tuned for Answered Prayers 2 and 3 this fall season! Enjoy the first selection of 12 poems!

Whenever You're in Need, you can Pray to the Angels Above to Receive Answers

This Handy Book Will Keep You Inspired When You Need Some Divine Intervention and Heavenly Guidance

Answered Prayers and Dim Starlight

Answered Prayers

The angels are ordered and answer prayers of the believers,
May they be at home, or worshipped at church to God,
Cries for help, need and advice, or for the suffering,
As all answered prayers for the angels to hear.

The pendulum of all of their moods will swing,
When it starts out in anger, and ends in compassion,
They’ll judge all of God’s children on their Judgment Day,
For when their Annunciation Day comes, they’ll be ready.

Angel quote: “The angels are ordered to answer the prayers
of the believers. The angels will hear, and the pendulum will
swing {from anger to compassion}.”—Imam Salik




Dim Starlight

To equip a dull, respectable person with wings,
It would make Heaven’s bright stars go dim,
God’s angels would lose their halo’s glow,
And some might be fallen, and turn to evil.

It would be, but to make a parody of an angel,
For when they accept good spirited souls,
Respected their elders, helped the less fortunate,
And most importantly have a wholesome heart.

Angel thought #26: “To equip a dull, respectable person with wings
would be but to make a parody of an angel.”—Robert Louis Stevenson

Following Angels and Stellar Evolution

Following Angels

When in need, counsel, help and guidance,
I, too, would seek the angels to follow,
At church, or by my bed, with knelt knees to pray,
Lord of all angels, languish God me hallow?

Send the angels of pureness and innocence,
I gladly would emulate their holy zeal,
Surround me with warmth of the healing light,
I gladly would their glad obedience feel.

Fallen feathers of their wings as a sign,
My forehead, like theirs, the holiness seal,
Anointed in oil, baptized in water so fine,
Let new love build me up as rejuvenation.




Angel thought #40: “I, too, would seek the angels to follow,
Lord of all angels, with Thou me hallow?
I fain would emulate their holy zeal,
I fain would their glad obedience feel,
My forehead, like theirs, Thy holiness seal.”—Anonymous

Stellar Evolution

In the history of evolution of origins of mankind,
In the kingdom of humans, animals and plants,
There’s a class and a category of their very own,
That still evolves today, like the sun and the solar system.

It’s unknown to us today, and not written in the books,
It’s written in the constellations of stars and moons,
Man was created a little lower than the angels,
And it has been getting a little lower ever since.



Angel quote: “ Man was created a little lower than the angels,
and has been getting a little lower ever since.”—Josh Billings

Friendly Seraphs and Authority Tongues

Friendly Seraphs

When you need someone to turn to for help,
Or when you need someone for grief and sorrow,
There’s always someone to be there for you,
May it be in spirit, or even in person.

Just look up to the sky, and say a prayer,
God’s friendly seraphs will be on call,
They will hear you out, and send an answer for you,
Your answer will be received by God and answered by a fallen feather.

Angel quote: “Always be an angel-on-call for a friend.”—Anonymous



Authority Tongues

Whenever we get close to an angel,
Their language is is a class of their own,
The angels are so enamored of the language,
Especially the one that’s spoken in Heaven.

They only know Biblical, Hebrew, Greek and Latin,
English is a new language of their kind,
That they won’t distort their lips with the hissing,
Specifically the unmusical dialects of men.

To the angels, it’s Greek to them, needing translation,
Or an interpreter to find the meaning of the words,
But speak their own, whether there be any,
Humanely, who understand it or not.


Angel quote: “The angels are so enamored of the language that is spoken
in heaven, that they will not distort their lips with the hissing and
unmusical dialects of men, but speak their own, whether there be any who
understand it or not.”—Ralph Waldo Emerson


Principality Peers and Authority Cleansing

Principality Peers

Let us not fear, therefore, to be but a few among many in our belief,
That angels guide us, protect us, and when it’s time, await for us,
Let us not fear opposition, suspicion, reproach, temptation or ridicule,
Or this would only sway us to turn to the sinister dark side.

God sees us, and His angels, they’re forever looking on,
Observing everyone in this world to prepare for our arrivals,
They know we’re right, and be our witness to us too,
So when it’s time for our trial at Judgment Day, they’re ready.

And yet a little while, their presence will be visibly known,
By raising the white light carpet of warmth for our entrance,
And he that cometh shall come, and will not tarry,
That everyone who’s pure and innocent is welcomed to Heaven.



Angel thought #29: “Let us not fear, therefore, to be but
a few among many in our belief. Let us not fear opposition,
suspicion, reproach, or ridicule. God sees us, and His angels,
they are looking on. They know we are right, and bear witness
to us; and yet a little while, and He that cometh shall come, and
will not tarry.”—John Henry Newman


Authority Cleansing

An angel can illuminate the thought and mind of man,
Cleansing it with purity, innocence and good will,
Just by strengthening the power of vision to all,
Touching you with invisible hands and fallen angel wing feathers.

And by bringing within his reach, some truth to earth,
They’ll right the wrongs,and set Lady Liberty’s justice scale equal,
In which the angel himself contemplates to God,
That the battle of good versus evil will forever go on.



Angel thought #2: “An angel can illumine the thought and mind
of man by strengthening the power of vision, and by bringing
within his reach some truth which the angel himself contemplates.”—Thomas Aquinas

Vigils and Dream Weavers

Vigils

Sweet souls around us watch us still,
Keeping vigils in the night by the light of the moon,
Invisible touches press nearer to our side,
Brushing away the cobwebs of illness, not so soon.

Purity enters into our thoughts, into our silent prayer,
Answering calls for help, need, advice and consolation,
And with assistance from God, it’s with gentle helpings glide there,
By providing us to stay on the straight and narrow.




Angel thought #2: “Sweet souls around us watch us still,
Press nearer to our side;
Into our thoughts, into our prayers,
With gentle helping guide.”—Harriet Beecher Stowe


Dream Weavers

If you feel a tap on your shoulder with a faint tap,
A little heavenly guidance for love is on your way,
Look up to the sky to catch a fallen feather from angel wings,
Make a wish on a shooting star or comet.

Your dreams and wishes will come true for sure,
Blow out birthday candles, and toss coins in wells or water fountains,
Break a wishbone in half with your significant other,
They’re your dream weavers; where love abounds, angels hover overhead.


Angel quote: “Where love abounds angels hover overhead.”—Anonymous

      Thanks Suzette. These poetry chapbooks weren't published a decade ago. I wish! But they'll be more poems from weeks to come.

      Angels keep us from harm and are so much a part of our lives. I think many of us would be surprised to know how they keep us from danger every day. Thank God for this provision.
