Heavenly Haibun #NaPoWriMo2017 #GloPoWriMo2017

Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.
– Revelation 21:1-3

No tears nor sadness
No more death, mourning, nor pain
In newness with God

written in response to today’s early bird prompt for Na/GloPoWriMo Eve, inspired by the description of life in a new Heaven given in Revelation 21.

It’s not too late to sign up and join in the fun of writing 30 poems in 30 days for Na/GloPoWriMo2017!


  1. Shall have to go back to ‘Revelations’ … the hymn New Jerusalem is one of my favourites but I had missed the message of God’s dwelling place in this verse. Happy your post brought it to my attention. Blessings
