Passing Through Heaven

The sun rises at one end of the heavens… — Psalm 19:6

You passed through

a shower of leaves,

the light rising amid 

the overhang of trees,

and I thought of heaven

in that ray-spark moment 

when the sun sent 

just enough light

to give this trellis

a halo, as if I could step

into a sacred grove just

a dimension over, 

take a breath,

and find you again

on this side of living,

waiting for me, returned

like Lazarus.
