Soaring Wings: A Collection of Angel poems

Updated on October 12, 2016

A tribute to my lost loved ones

Before I wrote novels, short fiction and nonfiction here, I was a poet for a couple of years. After my grandfather passed away in December 2005, I started to write poetry that dealt with angels, Heaven, and God. From there, I wrote it in many forms and subject matters from nature to love to everyday life. I wrote poems for a couple of years before I stopped. I have written tons of poetry over the years. Today marks the one year anniversary of when my mother passed away. So I'll be honored one batch of poems I wrote back then.

Angels have wings to soar in the sky

Poetry Inspiration

My inspiration for my thousands of angel poems came from two small angel books I've brought in Pennsylvania on a trip. I've based my poems from there like a prompt. One was from a book of angel thoughts, and the other was from literary quotes and Biblical scriptures. All I took was that one poem and wrote a short free or rhyme versed poem. For each poem, I've included that thought, quote or scripture from the book for reference.

Back then, a bunch of my poetry in various subject matters and forms were published in ezines and some literary journals--some I did get paid in copies and with some payment, other than being online. The rest remained unpublished. I was set to them have in poetry chapbooks or poetry books to an e-publisher with free clip art, but it never came to pass at that time. So feel free to comment on my poetry with your thoughts. I'll be posting another batch of various angel poetry every month to share with my fellow hubbers. Enjoy my selection of eight poems from my Soaring Wings Poetry chapbook.

Soaring Wings and No Holy Beast

Soaring Wings

When we take flight into the white light,

Warmth confronts all of us when we arrive,

Angels and saints greet all at the pearly gates,

Surrounding by people who care and love us in clouds.


Our spirits soar on the wings of angels,

We feel at home is what eternity is all about,

Immortality is placed on soaring wings,

In Heaven, our new home is here to keep.

Inspirational quote: "Our spirits soar on the wings of angels" by Sarah Michelle.


No Holy Beast

Man is neither an angel, nor a beast,

They’re in between and not holy or mean,

Not even the duo like Jekyll and Hyde,

Man is just a human being.


And the misfortune for man is that,

That man is no holy beast to befall evil,

He who would act the angel acts the brute,

And man isn’t angelic, or a beasty monster.

Inspirational quote: "Man is neither angel nor Brute, and the unfortunate thing is that he who would act the angel acts the Brute" by Pascal.





Cherubs are listening from the heavens above to give you answers

Supernatural Guardians and An Angel's Home

Supernatural Guardians

Angels are the real thing, even invisible,

And so is God and in all of his glory,

They are supernatural guardians out there,

May it be in Heaven, or down on Earth.

Angels are the reassurance of the afterlife,

And that the supernatural eternity,

And the realm of God and His love,

It’s all real in the reality of it all.


Inspirational quote: "Angels are reassurance that the supernatural and the realm of God was real" by Richard Woods.


An Angel’s Home

An angel’s home is up in the heavenly sky,

They’re joined by God, and all saints and angels,

Freedom to do whatever we want without restrictions,

Or even without limits, they float on clouds.


It’s not only where the heart is to them,

But to all hearts--of the fallen and the living,

Only when it’s controlled, Fate is in their hands,

Except when it’s cut short from war or violence.

Inspirational quote: "To angels, home is not only where the heart is--but all hearts" from Karen Goldman.


Believe in Angels and Guardian's Book

Believe in Angels

Never doubt in yourself when you’re down,

If you believe in angels, don’t you frown,

Is despair the very end of your woe?

Far off the angel voices the answer, “no!”


Never give into temptation or be in despair,

God is there for you, always understanding, and to care,

Devils despair, for they believe and tremble,

But man believes and hope to have faith and reassemble.

Angel thought #19: "Is despair the end of woe?

Far off the angel voices answer, "No!"

Devils despair, for they believe and tremble,

But man believes and hopes."--Caroline Norton.


Guardian’s Book

A guardian angel has many things to do,

And with joy in His world, the guardian angel now sees,

They can predict the future in the present,

For a special doting child upon his knees.


With God’s hand and knowledge, a guardian writes in his approving book,

And composes of all good things as virtues and innocent,

Checks it off with each upward, earnest, holy look,

Crosses off the bad wrongdoings as sins.

Angel thought #34: "With joy the guardian angel sees

A duteous child upon his knees,

And writes in his approving book,

Each upward, earnest, holy look."--John Keble



Visiting Seraphs and Assets of An Angel

Visiting Seraphs


For God will deign over Earth into the heavens,

And join Mother Nature and Zeus for wordly reign,

To visit oft of the dwellings of just men and mankind,

When it also visits the homes of women too.


Delighted is the feeling they have, and with frequent intercourse to travel,

From Heaven’s jeweled city of pearls to Earth’s ground,

To that place He will send His winged messengers for Him,

Delivering answered prayers and calls of help and need to His people.


And the return back to their home in the sky,

When visiting seraphs come knocking on your door,

On errands of supernal grace and good fortune,

With love, happiness, joy and peace to everyone.


Angel thought #3: "For God will deign

To visit oft the dwellings of just men

Delighted, and with frequent intercourse

Thither will send his winged messengers

On errands of supernal grace."--John Milton


Assets of an Angel

There are many assets of an angel in Heaven,

They’re always in motion on Earth, non-stop,

And their pure, innocent being is an intelligent essence,

Which makes them for who and what they are to us.


Angels always have a free will,

They serve God in the heavenly sky,

They’ve been bestowed with immortality,

And they always are incorporeal.

Angel thought #84: An angel is an intelligent essence,

always in motion. It has free will, is incorporeal, serves God,

and has been bestowed with immortality."--John of Damascus

      Hi Kristin - I enjoyed reading your poems about angels. It seems that in times of grief, we do turn to the concept of angels, whether real angels, or humans who become angels for us.

      I loved all of these poems about angels. I have had many encounters with angels. They protected me on my drive across state lines to see my dying mother. They have intervened on my behalf many times in my life. I am a breast cancer survivor. The Lord healed me for it was there and then it was gone! I love it when he baffles the doctors.

      Blessings always

      Up beautiful, interesting, useful and awesome

      My late wife had a few encounters, during her years fighting cancer, with those she considered to be angels. I never doubted her. Thanks for the beautiful words of hope.
