Visions of paradise: heaven disclosingsomething of beauty, of joy and delight;

colours cascading that shimmer before us,
tempting from darkness to temples of light.

But we are grounded, the earth pulls, constrains us,
keeping us close to the things that we know.
Ours is the common, the mundane, the normal,
nothing to boast of, parade, or make show.

Verse 3 follows


Andrew Pratt (born 1948)
