Poems by LLS - The Eternal Stairway
Magnificent columns of filtering light
connect the blue sky with the earth
a soul returning to heaven
a baby decending to birth.
When the feathery clouds open
and reveal this awesome sight
we know that one or the other
is transcending the eternal flight.
No steps are clearly visible
upon this glorious trail
God made this wonderful vision
revealing heaven's link so frail.
So when you see the Eternal Stairway
come out of the universe's layer
remember all the traveling souls
and praise God in devout prayer.
The phenomena of lights filtering from the sky onto the earth's surface has been an inspiration for spiritual stirrings in some of us. I confess that when I observe such clouds and the streams of light that I am reminded of all the souls that are travelling between here and the promised beyond that follows death.
