New Jerusalem

The Blessed Interior

O to return
To the blessed interior:
The unspoilt garden,
In a redeemed, renewed Earth;
To see the King of glory
All royal justice and grace
Robed in pure righteousness
To welcome me home

To bask in the Son-kissed warmth
Of His peaceful presence
To refresh in the cool shade
Of the eternal tree of Life;
To join the saints and angels
Bursting forth in choral voice:
Singing everlasting,
Praise upon praise

Hopes and Dreams


Written following this week’s Haiku Challenge on RonovanWrites – “Field & Beacon” :

Lush fields of dreams roll
A tow’ring hilltop rises
Where hope’s beacon burns
