Two in the morning

Awake without warning

We are not alone

Never on our own

God’s army of angels

From another plane

From a different place

Another race

Angels of light

Reflect in the night

God’s love from above

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

  5. A comforting concept. I like the non-contradicting contradictions – well, on a deeper level they aren’t.

  6. How can you sleep with a bed crowded with an army of angels? Do they demand some of the secret stash of chocolate hidden in the nightstand as well?

    • Chocolate? I wish… I have been so sick since Sat lunch. Must have been something (not chocolate) I ate… Weak tea, last night and this morning. Waiting to get marie biscuits to try? Btw, re angels, have you heard the little rhyme ‘There were ten in the bed and the little one said…?

  12. I guess you woke up in the middle of the night, Denise, to have written this.
    I think the best time for prayer is then, when the body is quiet and the soul can talk to God. I loved this.

  13. I did, John. I often wake in the night with the first few lines in my head. These are the ones that just come to me effortlessly. But if I don’t write them down imediately (which has happened a few times) then they’re lost. Thank you so much.

      • That’s not always the case, John, more’s the pity! Sometimes I just have a word or phrase on my brain and I sometimes do have to work out what to write. I never know what the end result will be though.
