Poem – Earth and Heaven

Earth and Heaven

In the morning,
early, the wind gifts the lilac scent.
I open my car door. I am going to dialysis.

I take a long moment,
breathing deeply
and I know there will be lilacs in heaven.

There will be a long, sandy beach,
warm air, blue waves washing everything,
my dogs must follow me in. We will swim all day.
