The Kingdom of Heaven

The Kingdom of Heaven is within (or so I've heard).

Me: My youthful flesh-
So soft and mild,
Will it decay?

God: Yes child, yes child.

Me: And my sharp wit,
My supple mind?

God: Ah yes, that too,
You'll leave behind.

Me: Well what of passion,
Romance, heart?

God: Yes, even that
Shall soon depart.

Me: What is this mystery
You hide?

God: Nothing is hidden

  1. Interesting item as always, Ruth! As a surgeon, looking inside has too many meanings and memories for me, but as you, I search for simplicity.

  2. Thanks Dr. J.

    I could see how, as a surgeon, "looking inside" might be a bit literal and visceral for you.

    I only meant it metaphorically, for sure! I am NOT a surgeon and do NOT want to gaze on my innards :-)
