Incredibly rare, but it happens.
My angels crawl into people
I encounter for only a few moments.
Three or four humans consecutively
have massive smiles.
and greet me
as if they love me,
and there is no apparent reason.
There is love spilling from them
like bearnaise sauce at a furious boil.
I’ve submitted this for Jingle’s Potluck with the theme of Peace, Relaxation, and Spirituality.

this is my favorite of yours that I have read yet.
I cant stop reading it.
so good. so original.
your voice is very obvious in this one, obvious and strong.

Thank you for this. I can learn from your observation. When I wrote this one, the subject was good and was right in front of me but I couldn’t get it on paper right, but you’re seeing something better than I saw.

That’s awesome that your angels crawl in and out of people. I’ll have to put in a few requests to my angels. I want to see more smiles.

maybe creepy on one level, angels going into people, but I like the idea of people being made happy by meeting you!

Thank you for your comment, Jessica. I think the angels might be helping all of us be happy with each other.

This is AWESOME. There is somethign about the smile of a stranger. A reminder that humanity has a good side too.

Yes, I think my angels help me remember the good side of all sorts of things, especially humanity!

“My angels crawl into people”
“There is love spilling from them
like bearnaise sauce at a furious boil.”
Love these lines. Had to Google “bearnaise sauce” – yum!
