Plane Food

Out the window
the
World is a tiny place
and
All of the boundaries disappear

Now we are above the clouds

Eight Miles

by Jem Croucher

Eight miles took us past the Ring
where the view as ever was
breathtaking in the sunshine
on the South Downs here because
(and I know that some will argue)
but this is heaven here on earth
A place that God has smiled upon
and with riches given worth

Pea soup days

by Jem Croucher

lawress-hall-22-1-13-8

It really was a pea soup day
with freezing fog all ’round
reducing visibility
with ice upon the ground
Everywhere was coated white
not from snow but frost
and in the thick and murky fog
it was easy to get lost

Heaven’s Christmas Celebration

by 50djohnson

Poetry challenge: Christmas poem.

.

by  Debbie

.

Having Loved Ones in heaven at Christmas sometimes makes the holidays very melancholy.   As Christians we have a hope others do not. That hope is to be with them again around the throne of God , the great I AM. I lost six dear family members in less than 9 months in 2012. This is 3rd Christmas without them… with the empty place setting, with no present for them under the tree. But thanks be to Jesus for He has set us free! Merry Christmas. Have you ever wondered if they celebrate Christmas in heaven?

Of angels playing on the sun in such a childlike way.

Melancholy fades away
as Leonard now rests in peace

Nostalgia – Remembering

by The Showers of Blessing

Once in awhile, I have an urge of

Going home to see my parents.

I shook my head hard for a few seconds,

Remembering that they were gone to heaven.

Rare moments

by Jem Croucher

IMGP0299

Capturing rare moments
bring a soliloquy
even if I’m by myself
‘tho most would still agree
For there’s substance in these words
which rings true with everyone
The joy of finding heaven
is a thing which must be done

Lavender Nirvana

by Jem Croucher

IMGP0291

Found my lavender nirvana
down near Chichester today
A field of purple flowers
gave me heaven by the way
With intoxicating fragrance
and the sound of honey bees
There were tears of joy at just the sight
As I fell down to my knees

Something else gives better cheer

Place of “No Mores”

When I think of all the times of sorrow

No more will they be in all my tomorrows.

For in heaven there will be praise and joy

No one to devastate and destroy.

When I think of all the days wrenched with pain

No more will joy from each day be drained.

When I think of all the heartbroken tears I’ve cried,

Heaven’s Christmas Celebration

by 50djohnson

Poetry challenge: Christmas poem.

 


 

I caught a glimpse of Heaven’s Christmas in my dream the other day,

Of angels playing on the sun in such a childlike way.

Swinging on the crescent moon, singing of Christ’s Birth,

I realized it was Christmas,  high above the earth.

Words cannot describe the colors of prisms sparkling glow,

For only glorious colors reflecting were seen here below.

Watching Jeannie,  Mom and Dad  sitting at Jesus feet,

Made the wonderful Christmas dream nearly complete.

A Devilish Conspiracy

by Noura M.MouSsa

I see the devil dressed as an angel,
But only I have that knowledge,
A knowledge that I consider a curse,
Nothing I would share with someone else,
I see a smile, they all admire,
My bruises are shown, suddenly seem clear,
They think my envy is turning into fear,
But I am not to tell why we’re both here,
When angels come a devil goes,
But when a fallen angel dies another on falls,
They gave me knowledge but not the power,

Dance With The Devil

by Noura M.MouSsa

You can leave him and go to heaven,
but still you choose to dance with the devil,
He makes you feel warm with his cold eyes,
In your ears he whispers his well known lies,
He holds your hands with his,
filled with blood,
he makes you think he’s the only hope you got,
He brings you beautiful gown
then compliment it,
At a point you wish he had never sent it,
His eyes will kill your joy, steal your youth,

Fallen Angel

by Kerrie Ann Salsac

Once upon a time,
a long, long time ago,
I reigned up on high,
I ruled the goddamn show.

But now here I lay
broken far down below,
a shadow since I 
lost my heavenly glow.

I am no sinner,
do not think me wicked.
I am no devil
whose conscience is twisted.
