Part One: In Which I Remember

...Heaven...

When I was a young girl, heaven was sitting on one of Saturn's rings, eating an ice cream cone. I could hear the choirs of angels while lying on a warm deck next to the swimming pool, watching the big dipper on a cool summer's night. Heaven was so big…but I could hardly call it lonely; every afternoon I would meet the King and Queen of Fairyland for tea. The prince would join us on occasion, and I dearly loved his company. He owned a priceless steed - a rocking horse by the name of Carver - and the prince would give me pears and sugar cookies to feed him with.

I lived next to a castle made out of amber, and in the morning sun it reminded me of the Seraphim at my Lady's coronation. In the castle there was a ballroom, but it was nothing compared to the one in my driveway. It was in that ballroom - my ballroom - that I first met the prince. We fell in love, of course, for how could it be otherwise?

Happiness reigned in my home. I planned meticulously for my house, spiritually, economically, and physically. Never have I seen (or will see, I suppose) a sturdier institution than the one I planned out with crayons and construction paper.

Comments

...

Interesting writing, and very pretty. I don't know if I would call it orthodox though. Admittedly, I found it just a little strange.

"I remember when trust went forth free
Sold for a smile on the face of a fantasy
Truth found a home in the pages of fairy-tales
Decadent words born from phrases in dreams that failed."

Thank you LoriAnn for your comment, and I especially thank you for being so honest. Yes, it is a bit strange, but I think it may seem a little less strange when you read the second part (once I post it), along with the Chesterton quotations.

There's only two parts to this? That's not fair! It's beautiful writing! I've never read Chesterton, though, so I couldn't say if it's similar or not.

Thank you Bridget. :) Oh!

Thank you Bridget. :)
Oh! You should definitely read Chesterton. Start with his fictional works if that suits you best, but his essays are just as good. He is so eloquent and...hilarious.
