Summer Before Last I Saw an Angel by Peter Menkin
by Peter Menkin

A little on the light side about Angels I have seen--just one...

An older and lighter poem about angels, this poem was written more than two summers ago, making the angel sighting event about four or five years ago. Maybe it was the heat, how the air can rise over a hot blacktop on a summer day creating a mirage. I caught this vision out of the corner of my eye, and when I returned to look at the angel with surprise, what was there was an ordinary man. When I turned back, there was the angel again--seen out of the corner of my eye. Call this an angel sighting.

Summer before last I saw an Angel...

by Peter Menkin


Way out West where cowboys

and Indians live (they live in villages, native), two summers

ago there was an angel

at the gasoline pump--Chevron Station. (Greenbrae, CA.).

He looked like a man; there

are many men, but few angels


encountered at the Chevron, even in summer

the year before regular gasoline prices jumped.

Some like it here, these angels; tell

you these tall creatures as from


early Biblical story times. These are those among us.

Look for them now and then. Portents of friendly,

I hope, visitors walking among us

and driving both General Motors and foreign made

automobiles, filling the tank at the Chevron in summer daylight.


Are you a believer in angels, tall

or like many that these are travelers

come among us to stand and wait, enjoying

us humankind who are really animals of earthly birth.

I wonder.
