EDEN


Many seas separate lost souls

from distant shores of heaven here;

gulfs of hope and expectations

denials and disappointments


Many isles of assorted idolatries

of gods and goddesses,

wealth and fame, 

become permanent dwellings

outside of Eden


But no divide I am yet to find

is greater then the chasm

between seeing and being

finally to be crossed before

gates to this Garden of Pleasure

are opened once more
