Heaven on Earth

IMG_1530

Heaven on earth,

heaven reaching us,

is what I sometimes observe,

stumble across.

 

Those few steps

toward the ocean

when white sand

meets white clouds,

 

muted colors

have never seemed

so spiritually loud.

 

Am I witnessing

a miracle,

a glimpse of what’s beyond

 

as time stands still

while my spirit lifts in response,

 

gets to transcend

in an eternal moment

privy to mysteries

 

as a chosen one

having proven

in all of those tests

to be worthy?

 

Or am I simply

attune to such

celestial beauty

gifted to us all,

 

extra sensitive

and overenthusiastic

before all forms of nature,

grandiose and small?

 

Heaven on earth,

heaven reaching us,

is what I capture

often in my lens

 

as proof

that there is

so much more to come

after the end.
