Since Iconography is the description of images,i interpreted this painting from the perspective of Jacob who fought with an angel in the bible.

Alone with my thought 

When a swarm of fireflies buzz past me

Glowing in myriad of colours

I was captivated by their sight

Following the trail of their twinkle 

Behold a sight so rare!!!

There he stand in his full glory

Skin as white as snow

Face shining so bright

That i can't look up to

Wings shimmering in the dark

Fireflies giving him the heavenly spotlight 

What a divine creature to behold

I rushed towards him

To touch the divine beauty

I speed so fast

To feel the God's masterpiece 

As i reach out him

My heart skipped a beat

He is not Human!!

Seeing me,he was shocked

Ready to fight,he braces himself 

My mind a battlefield of words

As i fought him

He is as hard as rock

I cannot defeat him

Yet am not ready to let go

Not until he blesses me

The divine creature also prevail not

With the last bit of my strength 

I hold onto him tightly 

Asking me what i want

I shouted with great vigour
