Sahaqiel, Angel of the Sky

 

I am thy protector
and thy keeper

I am thy shield
and thy restraint

I am the light which illuminates thy life
and burns thine eyes

I am the barrier which separates thee from the divine

I am Sahaqiel, Angel of the Sky

Sahaqiel art by Eli Minaya

Sahaqiel art by Eli Minaya

 

The scholar fashioned wings
of his design
and leapt from the citadel,
drifting amid radiance
toward injury and fame.
What bondage is weight?
Even in burial
we ascend.
