Venerable Adoration Of The Angel In Me

On scraps of petals
I poured out verses
for the angel in me to sing.

The stars twinkled
in ethereal blues and myriad colours.
The angel dressed in white gown
with flowing sleeves
and a golden crown
began to dance
to the heavenly tunes of my verses.

Like an adoring pilgrim
with love filled eyes,
I lift upmy palms
filled with the milk of purity
and poured it on your blessed countenance.
The milk flew down
on the eyes, nose, lips, chin
and along the contours of your body.

It was a venerable adoration
beyond any reasoning.

In the pouring light of the soft morning sun
white clouds lie flat on the lap of the blue sky.

At dusk
I heard the whispers of the mild rain
and felt the gentle cool breeze.

Fill my heart O Angel
with the gentle music of a flute.
Touch my lips with a white feather.
Paint my eyelids with the golden rays of the dawn.
Make me lie on your holy lap
like dew drops clinging to the blooming rose.

(My adoration of the angel in me cannot be explained by human reasoning. In the morning and at dusk I pray "fill my heart O Angel and make me lie on your holy lap".
My verses and the angel's song and dance and my adoration with the milk of purity are my expressions of a devotion of this inner reality in which I believe. I believe in an angel in me. Do you also believe? ? ? ?)

    The angel in me…. I never thought of it in that way, but now that you mention and put it in that sense, I like it and appreciate. Now I am ready to except the angel in me. Thank you for your beautiful words.

    You turn yourself in an infant and write with the treasures of experience.Simple words, fanciful imagination, but you add your punch lines in such a manner that it becomes more effective, I would take it as a preaching a medicine not to loose my childishness.
    The moral i learnt 'Believe in your self, retain your nature with which you are born.And I guess everybody is supposed to do the same'

    The power of life comes from angel you praised in your poem and what they called the devil which can be expressd as the power of black or energy from the earth.
    The beauty you managed in your poem partly comes from the power of black since you can not stand without the existence of earth. The beauty of the angel side takes part in controling, unfolding and blossoming the beauty of dark side for reaching to your heightened world.
    I do absolutely agree the angel in your mind control the power of life. So to reach to your internal height, your angel is essential.
