There Will Be Constant Music

[And I saw a new Heaven and a new earth...
-Rev.: 21:1]

there will be constant music
excessive moonlight spilling over into
the crystalline cups of night

and waterfalls of light
lakes of colours in the skies
she sighed

it will be so beautiful
we will never leave
and the wind rose sympathetically

(the roses to the wind)

little birds, more intensive in their song
sang of the green leaves forever
the flowers on the trees

never letting go
never let go my mother sighed
never let go

of my hand
in the world
or of the hand of God...
