Heaven by Susan L.

  I finally made it to the Writer's Nest last night. It had been a while. It was a small gathering, only half a dozen ladies, but it was nice to spend most of the evening chatting, catching up and sharing things other than our writing. The topic was gratitude seeing as it was Thanksgiving this month.
  It's a treat to be able to meld the two social events in my life: the Bible study group and this one. In the study group, we are learning about Heaven. It inspired me to write this poem I shared last night:


 Swirling upwards,
   The singing columns caress the roof
      of Eternity.
   Their fragrance fills the senses:
   A burst of purple on the tongue
                       With hints
   Of cinnamon music that sparkles
      Before the eyes.

   Laugh the dancing, divine light:
      The Song of Songs,
      The Joy of Joys.
      "Oh Holy of Holies,
      Blessed be Your name!"

Between the prism hues,
      Bereft of shadows,
   Chant a sweet smelling blanket:
      Lavender mauve,
          Autumn leaves' honey amber
                        And gold,
   So clean and pure.
         So sweet.
Living turquoise,
        And incense green,
   Sky-water blues
   A sigh in harmony.

The Lord of Lords,
The King of Kings,
The Presence Beyond Presence,
   More beautiful than life,
               Wraps the soul
      In promised peace fulfilled.

   "And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away. Then He who sat on the throne said, "Behold, I make all things new."" Rev 21:4-5
