I Saw an Angel

Angel in a Cemetery in West Sussex ~ Photograph by me, Robin Dalton 2011

I saw an angel today
It was trapped in stone

I sighed with the beauty of it
Longed to see life in its wings

With a dog at my heels
and eyes firmly shut

I almost felt an angel's breath
on my cold, wet cheek

When the sun returns
I will remember this day

And know that on a rainy day
lost, forgotten, full of despair
I was kissed by an angel


  1. Beautiful be kissed by an angel, what a wonderful thought. :) Beautiful blog too..

  2. ah, a tender touch today...when needed the angels there, concrete or otherwise..smiles.

  3. Nice one, all goes silent and the angel is upon you.

  4. Beautifully shared... sweet angel kisses, how special.

  5. Thank you, everyone for your kind comments. The last two weeks have been rather difficult and I have not been very successful at finding time to write and blog. This was done quite quickly, as I didn't want to miss One Shot Wednesday, yet again.

    In retrospect it does seem to have turned out just the tiniest bit sweet. Alas, sometimes sugar for the soul is just what I need :-)

    Once again, I am so grateful that you took the time to comment.

    Blessings, Robin
