Eternal Soul

The soul's forever—
As an eternal spirit.
Leaves this mortal coil . . . 
	 Again to the spirit world 
And home to Heaven’s Kingdom!

Death

Marks the end of life—
Transformation now begins.
The soul exits the Earth’s plane . . . 
	     A new journey’s underway . . . 
Heaven’s the destination!

Heaven Help Me

Please move it on sir
you are holding up the line
Re-innn...carnate what?
Could you repeat that? Oh, yeah!
See that ‘Been-There-Done-That’ sign?

To have loved and lost

To have loved and lost
are a heaven and a hell;
and the place between
is its own purgatory,
a limbo of sorting out.

My Huckle Berry Heaven 2K13

Many of time have
I sat upon earthy ground,
amongst Huckle Berry patches
gorging in Huckle Berry heaven
with glutton lips painted purple.

Heaven on Earth

Mama and Daddy
Are the whole of my small world
They love and tend me
Mama calls me Sweet Angel
My world is warm and happy

Light of Heaven

All the stars are gold
As the moon within my eye
Scattered here below
Light of heaven, come to fall
Fall so soft within these eyes

Could I catch the breath
Such life that calls to awake
Long awaited grace
Hold me here that I may fall
Cradle me, Oh sweet embrace

Baby Tanka

I dreamed of her
Honey, I dreamed of her
It was something great
I'm anxious to know of it
Our daughter is in heaven

Almost Heaven, West Virginia

majestic mountains
fog hovering in the morn
unsullied waters
hasten to the waterfall
filling the cold deep basin

Butterfly Heaven

Flying up so high Beaming with a life so proud Breathtaking colors After reaching the bright stars She falls like a streak, down…down The life so fragile Lost in the suffocating air She lost the battle And fell, day’s worth of climbing Gone within a moment’s time… To butterfly heaven

Lucifer

Lucifer

Son of the Morning—
Symbol of false perfection.
Lucifer is thus . . . 
	A tempter and deceiver . . . 
Praise only Almighty God!
