"Heaven"—Is What I Cannot Reach!

Rating: 3.0
239

"Heaven"—is what I cannot reach!
The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!

The Color, on the Cruising Cloud—
The interdicted Land—
Behind the Hill—the House behind—
There—Paradise—is found!

Her teasing Purples—Afternoons—
The credulous—decoy—
Enamored—of the Conjuror—
That spurned us—Yesterday!

The Color, on the Cruising Cloud— The interdicted Land— Behind the Hill—the House behind— There—Paradise—is found! Imagination of a poet or poetess need not be theological. tony

The decoy and the conjuror, puppet and puppeteer, victim and infliction, author, iniquity, so many places, roles well premeditated, raw and pure impromptu... Heaven, why every word should have an antonym? Teasing, credulous, aren't we all. Heavenly and not so much.
