Sun & Heaven - Poem by JeanPierre Barakat

I walked to the East
To see the sunrise.

I saw

Ice melting into a river
To later entwine
With the Sea...

Then I saw

Vapours hovering
In thin air and
Gathering in clouds...

Suddenly in the night

A distant thunder
Announced the storm:
Rain poured on my face
And soaked the ground...

The dawn revealed rich fields…

I touched flowers,
Wandered into forests and
Climbed mountains...

It was still East whilst heading West as
The sun was shining on my face...

A voice, from a higher plan,
Echoed in my ears:

“Heaven is everywhere.
Live gracefully your life:
God will take care of the rest.”
