Journey to Heaven


All the way to heaven is heaven itself. –  Zen saying

Ah, the journey to heaven
has no end
no beginning either for that matter

It’s the journey itself
that makes an imprint with each step

Heaven is felt as
feet sink in damp grass

It borders the path
with willows and wildflowers

You’ll find heaven in clouds
shaped as dragons and bunnies

Listen for heaven as
you climb creaky stairs

Heaven tickles your tongue
with cool water when parched

It’s shadows that dance
as leaves bob in a breeze

You can find heaven in
morning’s fleeting sunrise
and evening’s vibrant sunset

All day, all year, all your life
as you notice heaven along the way
you will know you have always
been in heaven
and always will
