Treasure Island

The Pedestrian

(Pittsburgh Pennsylvania)

Heaven Stuff


Heaven is a block party
Heaven is in the sky - you can see it!
Heaven is knowing you're in heaven
Heaven is just where you left it
It's a Southern California spring
and the cactus I thought for sure was dead
is sprouting new stuff
It's laughing with a friend about something
that was funny years and years ago
Heaven is a family ritual
like pancakes on Sunday morning
Heaven is closer than you think

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."

To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
