Creation of Light

archangels-iconThe man
who has seen the rising moon
break out of the clouds at midnight
has been present
like an archangel
at the creation
of light and of the world

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Tomorrow celebrates the feat of the Archangels… If you have ever been to my place, you know that I have a devotion to these messengers of the Lord.

It all started for me, oddly enough with the Train song, Calling All Angels. It was at a time of my life when

I need(ed) a sign to let me know you’re here
All of these lines are being crossed over the atmosphere
I nee (ed) to know that things are gonna look up
‘Cause I (felt) us drowning in a sea spilled from a cup.

Tonight, however, I will be watching the rising moon.   What song or icon gives you hope?
