heaven    1 of 4 >


heaven is within you

in light out of darkness
in grace out of anger
in faith out of doubting
in hope out of grieving
in love out of hating
in life out of dying
the kingdom comes

this is miracle

cf Luke 17 v21  People will not say, ‘Here it is,’ or ‘There it is,’ because the kingdom of God is within you.

First of four poems in the sequence Heaven.
