the angels don’t know


snow-angel

Heaven on earth. Hmm,
Now how will that look?
Harps and clouds
angels and cherubs?
Choirs and singing?

.

Doesn’t sound like earth to me.
.
Heaven not on earth, Hmm,
How does that look?
The angels know that answer.
.
Hell on earth
we know!
Over
and
over
and
over.
.
Even if you don’t believe in reincarnation,
What about hell
in this life?
.
We are like the frog in the frypan.
Sitting quietly in the water
as it slowly heats up
higher

and higher
from fighting with the pain
of existence.
Warmer

and warmer
until it lulls us
into semi-consciousness
then unconsciousness,
then we COOK!
And it’s
over.

.

Heaven on earth? This earth?
This polluted, ravaged earth?
This war torn, blood soaked, ball of chaos?
Heaven here?

.

Thy kingdom come, on earth……..
As it is
in heaven.

.

What does that look like?

.

The angels can’t answer that. They don’t live here.
They live “up” there,
somewhere,
different.
.

Down here,
of the earth,
on the earth,
what is heavenly to us?
.
We are the children of earth.

.
What if it’s up to us?

.
What if all that’s holding this world back
from being heavenly,
.
is our failure to decide?
