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.
