This is a piece I originally posted 10 yrs ago that I found and reworked describing the labors of love of angels in our daily lives and those watching us from heaven.

"Angels Retreat"

a dense forest of trees pregnant with leaves
weaves its intricate way into the dawning
and tiny zebra finches sing their songs
in a filtered balance of shadow and light
flowers unravel their bright Teflon robes
as morning comes to recover the dew
nature awaits the ball of the sun to ignite
just as soon as it rubs sleep from its eyes

snowcapped peaks glisten in the rising sun;
chameleons poised in the distant horizon
the melting snow releases its frozen grip
and races down the granite faced canyons
as the stars above disappear one by one
sinking into a graduated royal blue ocean
where a celestial surface radiates ripples
and therein angels simultaneously retreat

their casualties seem to keep mounting
in a cold world that is constantly changing
for theirs is the first line of defense to fall
as their capacity to love is always greater
while they work their invisible hands in life
and rip out their own hearts each night
some carrying their wounded back home
to heaven where an anxious father awaits

rookies are rushed in at the end of day
ready to change the world in eagerness
to take over the duties of fallen comrades
disabled from numerous unhealed wounds
as stars renew their pledge to reappear
the sun sets on stage as the curtain falls
the world spins slowly in three dimensions
and angels give as if they had never felt pain

I was lured to this poem on angels, Amor. I love anything angel related. In devotion to the "Angles Among Us", my home has angels in every room, sometimes 4-5 in many rooms. This is my way to honor the role they play in the Heavenly realm. A truly beautiful post.

I can't imagine an Angel would ever be a rookie, they seem so perfect, beautiful thoughts here.

I LOVE THIS WORK, AMOR...THE IMAGERY IS JUST FANTASTIC! THE UNIQUENESS OF THIS WORK IS WONDERFUL, HOWEVER, THE 'ANGELS' ARE JUST A LITTLE 'TOO' HUMAN FOR ME THOUGH. I MEAN, IF I DIDN'T KNOW BETTER, I'D FEEL SORRY FOR THEM. I RECENTLY TOOK A BOOK FROM MY BOOK CASE AND READ IT. IT WAS ENTITLED, 'A SIMPLE PATH'. A BOOK FOCUSING ON THE WORK OF MOTHER THERESA IN INDIA. WHEN I READ YOUR WORK, I THOUGHT OF HOW YOUR DESCRIPTION OF ANGELS FIT HER TO A 'T'. A PERFECT PORTRAIT OF THIS TRUE 'ANGEL'... ON EARTH...MOTHER THERESA. SHE WORKED SURROUNDED BY THOSE RACKED WITH PAIN. PAIN THAT WE KNOW SHE MUST HAVE FELT EMOTIONALLY BUT SHE PUT THEIR NEEDS ABOVE HERS BECAUSE SHE WANTED TO MAKE THEIR TRANSITION FROM EARTH TO HEAVEN EASIER. IT WAS HER CALLING, SHE DID WHAT GOD WANTED HER TO DO. SHE WORKED WITH A HEART FULL OF DEEP CONCERN FOR THE SICK AND DYING THAT SHE ATTENDED. SHE WORKED UNTIL THE VERY END, WHEN SHE COULDN'T WORK ANYMORE. SHE REFUSED TO CHANGE HER 'STAND', HER MODE OF GIVING, HER HUMILITY... WHEN IT CAME TO 'SERVICE'. A FAMOUS QUOTE COMES TO MIND AND I HAVE CHANGED IT A LITTLE, BUT IT STILL FITS HER PERFECTLY; 'OLD EARTHLY ANGELS NEVER DIE...THEY JUST FADE AWAY'. HEAVENLY ANGELS NEVER DIE BUT NEITHER DO THEY FADE AWAY. THIS IS A MARVELOUS WORK OF FANTASY, PRESENTED IN A MOST BELIEVEABLE WAY AND I ENJOYED IT. THANKS FOR SHARING. LOVE, BLESSINGS AND FAITH...

Amor this is one of your best. Yes angels continue to give above any sorrow or pain. Exquisite poem.

You write so beautifully, Amor!
In spite of all hurts and mistakes, God and the angels and those watching from above are always there for us. I've been thinking too of how we bring each other to life here on earth through our love and whatever attention we give to each other and to each cause.
Your last line is so captivating and the whole poem memorable!

Am particularly impacted by that final stanza, Amor, with the arrival of those "rookies" to take their place in the line of defence and to earn their spurs while

"the world spins slowly in three dimensions
and angels give as if they had never felt pain"

... fabulous closing lines to an inspired and beautiful piece of work. So lovely to read you again. xx

Delightful Amor,and the language is very vivid. The reader can see each action mentioned.
I love this line: "rookies are rushed in at the end of the day
ready to change the world in eagerness".
Thank you for sharing this beautiful work of art.
