Angels of Bounty and Abundance,
the soft wind of your breath
plays over the Earth
and every valley, hill & heart is full.
May I share the joy you know
and every lack be washed away
in the rain of all grace.
My prayer is a thirst,
your love, a cascade
of golden song
and plenitude of life.

Poet Gabrielle Herbertson has composed 6 lovely
and invocative prayers for the backs of the new angels.
Gabrielle writes and sometimes teaches poetry, essays, and stories, using words as invitations to the things beyond words. She has been doing this for four decades — through schools, independently, with young people, and in solitude. "Composing the Angel prayers is its own prayer. I reach out to the divine presence, joining my heart with all who need their help — from there, words can hope to bridge." She lives with her partner in the mountains of northern New Mexico.
