Angel Sprinkles

Updated on September 14, 2013

Wouldn't you like to see an angel

or make one in the snow?

How would it feel to have a helper

with us, wherever we go?

Should we go on an angel hunt

and see what we can find?

Perhaps unexpected trickles linger

that they've left behind.

Let's call these angel sprinkles,

mysterious as they may seem,

trials and blessings interwoven

with beauty, as in a dream.

Yellow sugar on vanilla star cookies

misty fog behind a bow,

mustard seed faith in the goodness of others,

orange crocus popped through the snow.

Johnny jumpups and purple violets

fronting a lawn in May,

Perhaps their seeds fell from angels' wings

as they continued on their way.

Children splashing through puddles in red rubber boots,

laughs on roller coaster thrills,

a comforting hug after a quarrel,

could these have been angels' spills?

Perhaps we don't need

to search here and there,

because signs of angels

are everywhere.

The ashes that formed us,

could they have been

splatters of ink

from an angel's pen?

Little infants, we,

with our tiny, twinkling eyes,

are we not only babies

but angels in disguise?

and our words and actions

sprinkled to and fro

throughout our lives

wherever we go

make us better or worse

depending on how we live

for each day holds choices

to take or to give.

May our deeds linger on as angel sprinkles

when our bodies are laid to rest

influencing others whose paths we crossed

so that those left behind are blessed.

Blessings, Sparklea :)

      I LOVE THIS POEM! There have been so many times in my life when I have felt that an angel flew in and swept the tears from my eyes. Voted Up/Shared.

      Unknown Spy: I LOVE seeing your name pop up, and thank you for visiting this hub and for your lovely words. I really don't write alot of poetry, but I have been inspired to share a little of my poems on HubPages, and I so appreciate the feedback. You are a treasure.

      I am way behind with HubPages as I've had alot going on...much that has necessitated my leaving the house, so I'm not on the computer. Hoping to catch up a little by next week. ALOT of appointments, but only ONE next week:)

      Blessings, and thank you again! Sparklea :)

      Michele: I LOVE angels. Thank you for taking time to read this poem and to comment on it. If each one of us on earth decided to be an angel for the day, I think alot of people would be blessed. SO many talents out there that humanity can use to "be" an angel for SOMEONE. Everyone needs an angel in his/her life! BLESSINGS and THANK YOU AGAIN :) Sparklea :)

      This is a beautiful poem. God sends his angels to us. Writing a poem to them, is like thanking God for them.

      There are angels every where... I met one today.. the most beautiful angel in a scarred skin... :)

      I loved these words .. so precious..

      Let's call these angel sprinkles,

      I love this poem because it does represent how God sends his angels to watch over us. We often do not recognize them. Love your sweet way of bringing this out. Voted up.
