ECUADOR AND JAPAN: Angels and Man

Another disaster was born.
Gabriel blew his horn.
Raphael opened heavens gate,
this just couldn’t wait.
Out each Angel flew,
zooming quickly to Earth
they had much work to do.
Holding children’s hands,
consoling mothers’ lips
As breath after breath
inched away
sip by sip.
Big strong men of muscles
and wise weaklings too,
the Angels rocked
and stood guard,
laid down beside them
to see them through–
the anguish,
the pain,
the dark,
the dust,
the confusion,
as life slipped away
and families
became an illusion.
The Angels became blood splattered,
ragged and torn.
Halos were bent,
their robes became dingy and worn.
They squeezed in,
walked through walls
held heads in their laps.
Soothed dying souls in whose arms they were wrapped.
Today, patiently the Angels are waiting
standing guard in Ecuador and Japan
Waiting to see what WE will do next,
Us,
Made in God-Allah-Buddha image–
called
MAN.
