I haven’t spoken to my soul today
Or maybe that’s all I do
Some would say the dialogue is prayer
Maybe the angel is
Which is fine with me
How else will it advise itself
Or send for orders?
Then sometimes I’m only speaking with
My duller, outside self
Closer to the surface, anyway
And this is how time passes, while
I’m trying to keep up
With other things
While part of me in silence, too,
Is waiting for the angel to return
Being suggestions I imagine that
Angels cannot understand, since will
By them has been
Somehow a war in heaven

I use C L Couch when writing formally because it is a version of my name that's genderless. And, frankly, easier for handwriting--I have a severe writer's cramp. In conversation, I go by Christopher, having been named for the boy who had the poly bear and finally being (achieving) fine with that.
I use small Xes all the time because WordPress won't let me cut and paste the text from my program page to this one. (Grrrrrr.)
I am a career educator, semi-retired due to disability. I live in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania (USA).
The main photographs at this site (of the road, of me) were crafted by photographer and my friend Debra Danielson. A variety of her work is available for appreciation at
Thank you, lookers, hearers.--Christopher

I’m interested in any suggestions that an Angel may have insinuated into the discourse. Divine revelations are always interesting to share

Hmm, that would be daring to say an angel told me to say such and such. For what it’s worth, I don’t think I got a sensation while writing and posting that I was saying something really wrong or getting myself in trouble with the host or the boss. I read about divine revelation in the works of mystics. I’m not sure how much I might experience that. Which is to say I doubt I do.

I reckon you always listen to your soul. You don’t need an angel. What do they know anyway?

Thank you, I honestly do try to stay in an attitude of dialogue with parts of myself. I don’t how that sounds, but there it is.
It might be that angels on their own don’t know so much. They’re always getting orders to carry out. Good news assigned to share and such.

Sounds logical and healthy to me, and I wish I could do that.
You’d think they’d use the internet 🙂
