A Poem: Heaven’s Reflection

I can see Heaven’s reflection.

Between here and tomorrow,
a long distance.
No waking and knowing.

Instead a step of faith, of trust.
Small steps,
hoping the earth will hold.

Yes, I can see Heaven’s reflection.

In a river starlit, wide and full.
In the sun breaking upon waves
to glitter.

While Heaven is there
and reflected here,
I can walk unafraid of distance,

knowing how quickly
light can travel.
