all the way to heaven

A Poem By Aisling // 10/13/2009

(This was an assignment practicing the use of vowel sounds to create a distinctive tone or feel...)

 

“all the way to heaven is heaven.” – st. catherine of siena

 
look—
all the long, long weary way
to heaven, at the end of this slow sojourn,
plodding moment after moment,
behold, one great gift of love,
of holding in our heart’s home
heaven’s treasure.

Brother: Your character should drive a motorcycle.
Me: He can't. He's in the wilderness.
Brother: Then make it a four-wheel-drive motorcycle!

Lovely.

Lovely.
