Heaven could possibly be

earth all over again,

with the exception

that in Heaven

we will start out knowing

what it took us

a lifetime on earth

to learn.

      teaches: A friend of mine who knows a great deal more about scripture than I do said Heaven would be all-knowing. I like the idea of that. There is so much in life I don't want to forget, including the mistakes I've made. But seeing the whole picture will put it all in the right context - I hope!

      Oh, so true. I'm glad that we will arrive in heaven with our present knowledge. Who wants to make the same mistakes again?

      Monos Mas: As a writer, I'm not very prolific. I think it comes from my newspaper roots. If I can say it in a sentence, I'm not going to make a paragragh out of it. My English profs hated me, but my J-school profs loved me. It's fine when I write poetry, but when I'm trying to write a novel it's a hindrance.

      Heaven is perfection, where there is no sin and where we can join the beautiful angels' voices and sing our praises to our Father God. Interesting poem.
