Heavenly Trees

“It is over there.”

And pointed to the tree.

 

I remember seeing Heaven

In trees.

And I remember climbing them

And ascending Heaven’s sphere in supple branches

And bending leaves.

 

I remember when Heaven was accessible

For mortal hearts

And it is when they are children.

And perhaps I can remember

Heaven and her environs

Because I was a child

Who never grew up

Inside.

 

Keep seeing Heaven,

My son,

And don’t forget to look

In the tree

For God.
