And that will be Heaven

and that will be heaven
at last      the first unclouded

to stand like the sunflower
turned full face to the sun       drenched
with light       in the centre
held        while the circling planets
hum with utter joy

seeing and knowing
at last      in every particle
seen and known      and not turning

never turning away

Evangeline Paterson

  1. My name is Hermine Jacot and I remember you well, Evangeline when we met in London a lifetime ago. And to discover that lovely poem of yours, what a thrill. Thank you for sharing your expressions of faith and hope. Blessings on you ! My love with you Hermine
