Surprise Visitor


The sound of eagle wings

so close you can almost

feel the fan of air kiss your cheek

A whoosh ripples through the bay

Startling, eye-opening delight

Sudden, unexpected visit from on high

I wonder if that is what

an angel’s wings sound like

a swoosh filling a room

slightly terrifying, jaw-dropping awe

A stunning glimpse of Glory

No wonder angels greet with Be not afraid!

About sstyves

A Canadian prairie girl rooted in Ignatian spirituality, I seek God in all things. Whether I catch a glimpse of the Divine and delight in its presence in nature or in the beauty of an encounter with someone, I am ever so grateful that I can recognize the Creator. I greet each new day with hope and happiness, expecting blessings and miracles because I am created to praise, love and serve God. This blog is one way of realizing that through my writings, prayers, and photography. To God be the Glory!
