Speaking of Angels...

This poem lifts me to remember the miraculous underpinnings of seemingly ordinary encounters. As per "Our Interconnection Saves & Inspires." 

from "The Angel Poems"

by Katerina Anghelaki-Rooke

Scattered Letters of Penelope: New & Selected Poems

Graywolf Press 2009

If in nature Being becomes secure 

and ceases to whirl about,

if it conceives of change without moving,

the angel will raise frame high

and the image will spread out like a rug

and transport us.
