The story of Heaven

let your drama fall away, what ever its shape,
to become the oval form
of the bowl
that will hold
the deep well of empty.

hold it as a waiting room
and let the visitor enter
who is already holding you in love.

you know Him.
She has been knocking and smiling
at your screen door,
as you swept your minds floor
with distracted
makings of story and need.

Decide before you open the door;
no need will be spoken
as you offer the seat of honor.
Let a gift be given ,
not of your thought.

Be willing to let empty be the gift.
Perhaps empty will tell us the story of heaven.
