Heaven and earth

We only need to be present to witness the extraordinary in the ordinary. This beautiful poem is a reminder of the need for presence in the world so we can be closer to heaven.

Rosalie Squires

sky 2

In special places,
So they say,
The veil,
Is very thin
That separates
Our world
From heaven.

Maybe so,
I cannot say,
But this is
What I see:
That veil
Is like a cloudy sky
Ever shifting
Over me.

A gap
The sun
Breaks through.
Then heaven
Is very close
To me.

About ivonprefontaine

I completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. Previously, I taught for 20 years and taught for 15 years in a wonderful hybrid school. My dissertation topic and research were how certain teachers experience becoming who teachers. In teaching and leanring, I am a boundary-crosser who understands moving ahead is a leap of faith. Teaching is a calling and vocation to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what calls me next. I am an educator, phenomenologist, scholar, boundary-crosser, published poet, author, parent, grandparent, and spouse.
