This is a poem I wrote in the 1970s trying to express the experience of creative work.
Angel meaning messenger in Greek, an intermediary force between the vision and its
expression or between the invisible and visible, implicit and explicit worlds.
Agony means struggle or wrestling, which is also often involved in making things happen or appear.
But the poem says what it says and should be understood as we can, each according to our own experience.
AGONY OF ANGELS
Vision of inscape
Parents of poems
Chaos of world
Dance of the dream
