I marvelled at the set of angel lights at the the beginning of each block, with another set of angels at the end, as I joined my friends at a pub. 

It seemed right these angels should be here, watching over the revelry. As I later walked a block down in the early morning hours to catch a cab, I recalled my thoughts on angels as child. 

Sometimes I had nightmares and I was too afraid to fall asleep. My Mom told me not to worry because God’s angels were always watching over me. Still, I looked to the corners of my room afraid because the corners were the darkest places. 

Eventually, I began to imagine angels were there in these corners guarding me as I slept. If I woke up afraid I’d look to the corners of my bedroom ceiling and feel safe. Sometimes I dreamed I could see these celestial beings watching over me. 

Going home that night in the cab I gazed at the angels made of lights, four of them guarding a street; I hoped the night ended safely for all.

    I love the idea that angels are in the darkest corners, guarding us and protecting us. A little ray of light in the dark. It’s beautifully written, Mandi 🙂

      Thanks Singledust, it’s my own experience as a little girl. I used to have bad dreams about witches once I moved too my new room in the basement. Once I started picturing angels I felt safe. Every little kid I think needs to know there are things bigger and stronger than the monsters which help them 🙂

        Think that’s really encouraging especially for kids who would have had some trauma or scare, having belief and something to mentally hold on to when they are left alone.

    I do hope that Mums are still telling children about angels that care. Liked your interpretation of the prompt
