JUST FOR SUNDAY: 1/15/12

Truth in Poetry

Sometimes we find poems better able to communicate than prose.  The following one might be categorized as such.  The message is an important one for us seniors to consider: Which side of this picture would I find myself?

SURPRISE IN HEAVEN!

I dreamt death came the other night,

And Heaven’s gates swung wide.

An angel with a halo bright

Ushered me inside.

And there, to my astonishment

Stood folks I’d judged and labeled

As quite unfit, of little worth

And spiritually disabled.

Indignant words rose to my lips,

But never were set free.

For every face showed stunned surprise.

No one expected me!
