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
with light       in the centre
held        while the circling planets
hum with utter joy

seeing and knowing
at last      in every particle
seen and known      and not turning

never turning away

Evangeline Paterson


The gaps are as the poet wrote them. If you read it aloud observing them. The effect is astonishing.
