Beyond Heaven

above clouds

dream beyond heaven
awaken to expansiveness
it’s only life after all

unlearn what doesn’t connect
there’s more than one answer
dream beyond heaven

soak the roots of what you know
with unscienced surprises
it’s only life after all

savor your introduction
to re-eternity
dream beyond heaven

braid cleverness with
uncertainty and awe
it’s only life after all

open-eyed and fast asleep
let go of earthly troubles
dream beyond heaven
it’s only life after all

Italicized lines are taken from outside texts:  it’s only life after all and there’s more than one answer from “Closer to Fine” and open-eyed and fast asleep from “Secure Yourself” – lyrics by the Indigo Girls

    Wonderful verse, LuAnne. I love the “unscienced surprises.”
