And That Will Be Heaven

“And That Will Be Heaven”
by Evangeline Paterson, b.1928

and that will be heaven

and that will be heaven
at last… the first unclouded
seeing

…to stand like the sunflower
turned full face to the sun… drenched
with light… in the still centre
held… while the circling planets
hum with an utter joy
… seeing and knowing
at last… in every particle
seen and known… and not turning
away
… never turning away
again
