The Heavens Are Open

Written by: Connie Marcum Wong

Heavens are open to view in the late night sky.

Celestial bodies spinning in orbit, moving

Light years away, exploding out of our sight,

Some on the same primordial path our

World once took; inviting travelers who

Roam the infinite universe, because they can!

How shallow minded to think we are alone, 

To scoff at proof and stubbornly cling 

To antiquated concepts of the past.

Visitors walk among us, though we 

Are not aware of what we share. . .

They know the id is filled with fear and 

Programmed to annihilate that which 

We do not understand.

The times of enlightenment are at hand. . .

A special gift for those willing to let go of 

Their egos and open their minds and hearts 

To embrace the destined future.
