The Sill Of Heaven

The Sill Of Heaven short poem

Photo by strftime


Let me rest my chin upon the sill of Heaven
Hoisted up by unseen shoulders from below
Let me gaze at hidden glories for a short while
Before I, into my busy day must go

Let me breathe the sights and harmonies of Heaven
Briefly there, but not belonging at this time
Let me join the thronging joyful in my mind’s eye
Knowing one day, mine may be this gift sublime

Let me dream, and hope, and dance just for a moment
Knowing life, in all its colours must play out
Let me sink back, not defeated now, but strengthened
Having glimpsed the golden future, beyond doubt

I can't remember when I didn't write poems but as I've got older, I find they spill into my head, often at inconvenient times of the morning! I use to write them on my way to work, hence the title of my blog, but now I've given up to go trekking around in a campervan with my husband. Plenty of time to reflect on the world, though I don't claim to understand it any better....
