Poetry: Not Of The Earth

Heaven is a place on Earth

Well, at least that’s what I hear

From people who live mostly

On Earth

They don’t live in the brightness

Of stars and galaxies

Neither do they live in the sweetness

Of Flowers and Rivendell

But I like to live in the middle

Where the universe meets the river

And the brave and free sing

Of happiness and beauty

The warmth of a gentle hug

Cool of honeycomb kept in the freezer

Sustenance of soul and mind

Kind messages from friends

Smiles and sugar

Those things are not of the Earth

You know

Those moments are gifts of God

And when I live through those parts of my journey

I live in Heaven
