It was John Milton who wrote Paradise Lost, the epic of
Adam and Eve, he was most probably counseled by angels,
I'm thinking of just a few, now there is the angel Raphael,
who escorted Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden,
and Israfel is known as the angel of resurrection and song,
wrote Edgar Allan Poe, even Michelangelo sculptured his angel
kneeling with a candlestick, Shekinah is the most interesting to me,
the female manifestation of God in man, also known
as bride of the Lord, the Bible says in Matthew 18:20
"when two sit together and are occupied with the word
of the Law, the Shekinah is with him." She was also
the messenger to Moses and Jacob, and John the
Baptist, and most probably to all us bloggers, poets, writers,
And then there is Gabriel, one of the two highest-
ranking angels in religious lore. He is the angel of
resurrection, mercy, vengeance, death and
revelation. Gabriel sits on the left-hand side of God.
He has 140 pairs of wings, and represents the
spirit of truth. There are many kinds of heavenly
beings that bridge the spiritual and physical realms.
Of course, the closest to humanity are our
guardian angels. They companion us and are
our guides to greater loving consciousness.
The more we are globally entwined, open to them,
caring and involved, the more our angels partner
us creating paradise on earth. They are doing it
openly, joyfully, bringing good humor and good
news using us poets, writers and musicians. Most
of us believe in a higher power, why not believe
in his angels?
