I Wonder If In Heaven

On earth, as it is in heaven,
Or the Bible tells me so--
I wonder if in heaven,
Will the winds of autumn blow?

Or will there be a garden,
Will the morningglory grow--
I wonder if in heaven
Will the springs of summer flow?

And just beyond the pearly gates
Will the seasons come and go--
I wonder if in heaven
Will there fall a flake of snow?

Or will my love be waiting there;
Shall I find my crimson rose?
And marvel at her beauty...
The smile Da Vinci knows.

~M

Hi Olive, and thank you for pausing to read this pondering of heaven. I have had some glimpses of heaven on earth, but I've experienced the thorns and thistles as well. Blessings and hugs...mel

How sweet. Thank you Andrea for dropping by to read this, and as you so often do, kindly comment. Mine is a lonely world, sometimes, so it helps to have angels like you uplift and edify. Peace and hugs, my dear...Mel

Hi Vera. Yeah, it's either gonna be something, or nothing. I guess if it's nothing, we won't know the difference. I believe there will be something, just hope it's green :) Have you read the book, Is Heaven For Real? The movie's out now, and it's quite the story. The kid says there are animals in heaven...hmmm. Maybe I'll get to see Rocky again, and watch him run. Hope so. Hugs, my sweet...Mel

I have often wondered the same things, and losing so many at young ages I wonder if they are together and what happens if someone gets remarried after losing a love, do they meet with their first or second love? wonderful poem with so many thoughts to ponder! enjoyed this read! :)

The beautiful Sandra. Thank you for reading this, and for posing such provocative questions--luv it. This is a discussion better suited for mail, so feel free to soup me. I luv getting mail--and I'm a guy lol I was blown away by your query about two loves, and I have an interesting take on that. Would love to share it. xxx Mel P.S. Could be a poem there--mine. I'm stealing it :)

Ha, The Smile, that Da Vinci knows... Mel, WOW...WOW!!! I felt the flow, FLOW right through me... I guess, I know a few of the answers, to the delight of your questions. However, a smile like the one Da Vinci painted, will be worth the while.... I got to admit, the poem was mighty fun to read, I read it over and over. Only to feel the beat from your pen. I imagine, you enjoyed writing this one with smiles and for yourself... Enjoyed... Linda

My dear friend Linda whom I've never met :) What a great comment---unlike some that are merely vein repetitions. I appreciate it-- a lot...and you. I want another anything goes contest, so get with it :) Meanwhile, I'm very pleased you read the poem, liked it, and took the time to comment so nicely. That said, guess I'll pick up my beating pen, and write something--just for you. xxx ~M

Feel free. I don't write these things for me, but for people like you, who have the ear for unforced rhyme, which is my secret--that and meter. Thank you again for reading my stuff and for taking the time to comment. It's greatly appreciated :) ~M
