Look Up (A Heavenly Moment)

“He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end.”

~Ecclesiastes 3:11

Clouds like

Grey cardboard cutouts

Float among

 Puffy cotton-balls

In a cerulean sky.

For a brief


My spirit

Is allured into

Their ethereal


“Take me!”

I plead

Though life is good,


Contentment found

–most days.

Yet I still know

There is something



In a world

I cannot


Spirit talks to spirit

There is work

Yet to be


But my brief

Desire to go home

Promises me

That I am


 “We live by faith and not by sight. We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord.”(2 Corinthians 5:7)

Have you ever experienced a heavenly moment like I did? Where were you?

  1. Thanks, my Jan! I knew you would. I haven’t written a poem in a long time. It felt so good. Always think of you when I write poetry. :)

  2. Dawn

    I have copied and will read next week (good intentions, anyhow) :) Clouds, like trees or the winds or birds or streams, which is where I find God most often, always make me think of “home”

    1. Thanks for sharing Dawn! I’m right there with you. Nature always brings me closer to “home”.

  3. Jan Doke

    What a beautiful poem, my Andy. I identify 500 percent! I love you, Jan.
