Among The Stars


There; among the beauty of the stars lay a vision of heaven,
as per our limited perception and definition,
for we tend to see only within the span of our reach;
The heavens are mysterious, vast and awe inspiring,
much like a fervent believer's faith and position,
Beckoning points of light shimmer from the darkness,
angels, perhaps in a poetic mind, guiding us to contrition,
Lends inspiration to our hearts and souls longing to be,
part of the magnificence of God's family and creation;
The freedom of winged celestial bodies and infinite space,
from the earth-bound fears and self-made constriction;
There; among the beauty of the stars lay a vision of heaven.

The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
