Gilt-topped evergreens

Heaven kisses day goodnight

Tomorrow’s dawn nears

Pale Flaming Clouds

Soul! Pale flaming clouds

Surely entrance to Heaven

Let’s be off at once…

Do you not see God’s glory

Shed Earth’s filthy tethers please

Heart’s Habitation (A to Z Challenge 2020)

“Be thou my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually resort: thou hast given commandment to save me; for thou art my rock and my fortress.” Psalm 71:3, King James Bible


Heart’s habitation

Hid in cleft, Jesus the Rock

Harbor, haven, home

Held in hollow of God’s hand

Holy Spirit hovers near


Heaven’s gateway glows

Hour of homecoming draws nigh

Sweet hush, angels’ wings

“And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places” Isaiah 32:18, KJB

Paint Me A Window

Paint me a window

In mind’s blue-shadowed attic

Where dim ghosts murmur

Paint it like cathedral glass

Hues of Heaven’s front porch glow


Paint grace-scrubbed windows

Filled with dawn light, fireworks night

Hosannas’ shimmer

Let me see longed-for faces

Recollections no more shamed


Wide painted window

May open with whimsy’s breeze


Lift heart’s thoughts on seabirds’ wings

Rain salt-tang-hope ‘mid winter

Wisdom’s Glimmer

Eugi's Weekly Prompt – Glimmer – January 27, 2020

Frequently glimmers

Beam of Heaven’s rich wisdom

Hands reach to capture

Tuck in heart’s fraying pocket

Lest ageing sieve mem’ry leaks

Heaven’s Home Office

I’m relieved God

Has not assigned me

A chair on His council

Where tenured saints

Discuss, vote on issues

Hand down judgments


Taking and typing up notes

Bringing donuts, spring water

Will stretch my limited

Talent, capabilities.

God understands, accepts

That I’ve never been ambitious

And when there’s an opening

In Heaven’s Kitchen

I’m assured the position…

Happy day!
