Shadows of Heaven


Transcending a world away

lifted high upon a spectacle of life

gathering the distance

on the palm of His hands


Dazzling within a perpetual light

inside an incredible joy

as a child in a carefree world

that no human can gather into words,


Sojourning out of time

upon a landscape of euphoria,

where angels and saints sing and roam

and bathe in the essence of bliss,

attaining an abundance of colors

with golden roads marveling

a beautiful abode on a sea of glass, living waters endure

in a crystal clear perception

abounding in spellbound,


No death or curse

invited in this exotic transformation

of paradise and youth

where eternity never sleeps

in the wake of an avenging time,

...but harmonizes an eloquent choir

in an enchantment

filled with lush gardens and majestic peace,

cultivating an ethereal beauty

amid high mansions in the sky

where nothing grows old

or becomes weary

inside an everlasting love


The realization that this life

holds the key to happiness

in the absence of truth

 is an damning lie

from the depths of hell,


...God never promised us

the importance of success

to be something,

or to have material things

that would fill us,...


For this deception is a shadow

from the heavenly glory that awaits us,...

    A fine write Gino. And as they say 'We can't take it with us when we die', if we're set on earthly riches.

      Thank you orchidee. Yes you are right 'We can't take it with us when we die"...haunting in a way, because we hold on to things of this world that don't matter and can't take with us to the light...
