We walk in silence.
As God’s rays break through the cotton candy clouds.
And shine on the hills on the horizon.
Our path is illuminated,
By the last of the evening’s light.
You point to the sky and
Tell me it looks like heaven is calling us.
God beckons us,
Daring us to join.
But after a moment of consideration,
We both agree that we have too much
Still to do on this Earth.
You take my hand,
And we turn our backs on God’s invitation,
At least for now.
And halfway home
I turn around to check if they
Are still there.
But the sky has changed.
And God’s visit is over,
For another day.
