Heaven

Marvel at the marbled sky
with more than just your earthly eye,
for each fraction of the firmament
hints at heaven's whole intent.

For The Tuesday Platform at Real Toads

It is heavenly to be able to see good hints that are forthcoming

Wow! I love this in so many ways.

Sometimes – or always? – the fragments turn out to be fractals.

(Oh – Colleen said that too, or nearly. *Smile.*)

We've had a lot of those marbled skies recently - I'm so glad you marvelled and wrote, Mama Zen! Your poem is reminiscent of William Blake.

Marian said...

Yes, I was thinking Blake, too, in only good ways.

Your words roll around in my mouth in synchronicity. What a poem should do!
