    To Hell with the Devil

    The sun shines
    The grass is green
    This could be heaven
    Dull yes dull, but heaven

    The surf crashes
    The wind braces
    The sirens cry heaven
    They beckon unto heaven

    Book cases two floors high
    Sulfur smell of cheap sci-fi
    So many versions of heaven
    Agnostic’s limbo, apostate’s heaven

    Friends to dine with
    Beloved to drink wine with
    Relatives celebrating heaven
    Children are a promise to heaven

    Peace is heaven
    Excitement is heaven
    Knowledge is heaven
    Those we love are heaven

    And don't forget "Love," is heaven! I really enjoyed the simplicity of this piece; Simply said, yet spoken strong! Great stuff!

    Heaven is where you make it. I'll go along with that. Of course, to be fair, it's only right that the devil's advocate be heard from ha ha. Top notch, W!

    Frost, thanks for posting, love the library of heaven you have here, ty WS

    Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
