"Heaven" has different Signs—to me

575

"Heaven" has different Signs—to me—
Sometimes, I think that Noon
Is but a symbol of the Place—
And when again, at Dawn,

A mighty look runs round the World
And settles in the Hills—
An Awe if it should be like that
Upon the Ignorance steals—

The Orchard, when the Sun is on—
The Triumph of the Birds
When they together Victory make—
Some Carnivals of Clouds—

The Rapture of a finished Day—
Returning to the West—
All these—remind us of the place
That Men call "paradise"—

Itself be fairer—we suppose—
But how Ourself, shall be
Adorned, for a Superior Grace—
Not yet, our eyes can see—

    Heaven is a cut and paste job
    Of this good old earth of ours
    It is we who made a hell of it
    And now looking for life on Mars

    (Excellent piece by a Emily D in her typical style)

    all in our parody, heaven is, if obverse of hell, why both are not with in us.
    if orient brings mystery, west brings mirth.

    most of the people are born here, they stay here and similarly wear off the planet.with their reminiscences.
    and regret for a un done cause that is to sight a heaven in dreams rather realise their shut eyes.

  • Karen Sinclair (7/8/2012 5:11:00 AM)

    The beautiful side of mother nature~of what our eyes see here on Earth~ are but semblances of a place we can only imagine~Heaven

  • Ramesh T A (7/8/2010 8:43:00 AM)

    Lovely poem about heaven on Earth is wonderfully written for the reading pleasure of all!

  • Saadat Tahir (7/8/2010 5:22:00 AM)

    clearly Emily holds creation in awe... she is mesmerised by the mundane and ordinary yet beautiful
    she sees signs of a reincarnation at a different level, in day to day happenings
    she speaks of the presence of GOD or the ultimate being...and the meaning of loife and death on a deeper level..
    the poem is so fluid and charming.... in simplicity it is unmatched, so is the content...
    a culmination of poetic discourse, i d say
    abso amazing

    cheers to her... a celebrated poetess par excellence

    i guess she's trying to describe heaven to things
    availble to us and has a reservation of something
    we haven't seen.
