urban angels

Angels walk amongst us
each and every day
they brush us with their feathered wings
then turn and move away

we feel it in our bodies
know it in our souls
Angels dress as everyman
every being, woman and child

they’re in the world around us
look twice and you will see
a glint of incandescent wing
a feather on a sleeve

a wingtip chiseled out of stone
soft lips with hint of smile
kind eyes that pierce deep within
a heart that listens awhile

an Angel brushed by me today
called back by urgent need
she winged her way to nuzzle me
and wipe away my tears

imagine if your Angel
was heavily disguised
would you still pass by unaware
not an Angel in your eyes?

Artist's Description

I wrote this poem to accompany my urban angel photograph series, looking for angels where you least expect, a homeless angel, an angel on her scooter on her way to work, an angel statue watching over your city, a romper stomper angel, a little girl angel and a tattooing angel. never dismiss anyone as they could be your angel in disguise…
