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 George Gordon Byron

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
