Heaven’s Daughters

 

 

i imagine our “children,”

the fruit of our love–and strife,

Dancing

Dancing in the sky

Among the stars–

Heaven’s daughters

Created of pure love,

Too pure for earthly confinement

Dancing above us nonetheless,

Skirts moving with the breeze,

Laughing,

Laughing,

those children of mine in the sky

Looking down at me

Running here and there in

Merriment

Forever immersed

in love

Where they belong


Kelly Salasin, 2002
