I come in the little things, Saith the Lord: Yea, on the glancing wing of eager birds, the softly pattering feet of furred and gentle beasts. I come in the little things, Saith the Lord: Not borne on the morning's wings of majesty, but I have set My feet amidst the delicate and bladed wheat. I come in the little things, Saith the Lord.
-Evelyn Underhill

Heaven's Door

Rowan Tree

Who has not found the Heaven — 
below — 
Will fail of it above —
~Emily Dickinson




Heaven’s Door….

Stands open wide
Beckoning me with each Tide....
 
Each Sun as it rises
Each Butterfly’s disguises....

Each Flower's unfolding
My Eyes beholding....

Each Bird on the fly
As Moon rides across the sky....

Each Sunset’s brilliant hue
Calling me to You….

  1. This is another verse of Emily D's that I'm not familiar with, Cathy. You are really educating me on her work. I know mostly just the poetry she did that's taught to children, or included in anthologies of children's poetry etc. I'm not too familiar with the work she did that's "older," deeper and more adult. And I love your own verse here!! Short and sweet for one thing, and very evocative. What a Renaissance person you are - no kidding. You not only have art/visual skills, but words as well. As one of my psychology professors would say, it's clear you are definitely using both sides of your brain. Hope all the Schultzes had a wonderful Thanksgiving! 🍁

    1. You might like to read one of the biographies on Emily Dickinson. She led a very interesting life! A movie came out on her life this year: https://youtu.be/7C5XaoNrapQ I'm waiting for it to come out on DVD to see it. Thank you for liking my poem! ❤️

    2. Thanks for the info, Cathy. Will check it out. I'm becoming a huge YouTube fan. I've found videos there on nearly every topic there is! I'm especially loving the instructional ones. This year I've learned how to fold table napkins in certain ways, how to make rugelach, etc etc. One of the best things about the Internet... ⭐️
