Michael Shepherd Heaven Poems

0161 Heaven: Thoughts From 1350 Ad/Ce

not in the clouds, nor here on earth beneath;
heaven's not in front, behind, nor left nor right -
and yet, in love it comprehends all these.

off the yellow-grey-brown London claybricks
of the house across the gardens;

Be a dolphin. Feel yourself
at home in the beloved water
in which you were fathered, mothered,
fed, grow up, and swim with all your friends…
