In my experience, the wings of angels can also be ribbons of light, or fans of rippling energy like interference patterns crossing, or many other manifestations. But people expect feathers, so feathers they see.

Angels of spirit are numinous creatures who can appear in many guises. There are various possible reasons why they might appear with wings, and why humans might gain wings.

Your comment inspired the poem "The Invisible Things of Him," which I've thumbnailed along with some others in "Half-Price Poetry Sale, Part 2."
