heaven  < 4 of 4

Image result for seed growing in rock

new heaven, new earth

from seed into flower
from labour into birth
from dust into diamond
from nightmare into dawn
from rot to resurrection
from half-seen shadows
to face to face

this is our destination

cf Revelation 21 v 1  I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. 

Last of four poems in the sequence Heaven.
