The First Clear View

'And That Will Be Heaven'

and that will be heaven

and that will be heaven
at last the first unclouded

to stand like the sunflower
turned full face to the sun drenched
in light in the still centre
held while the circling planets
hum with an utter joy
seeing and knowing
at last in every particle
seen and known and not turning
never turning away

---Evangeline Paterson
