In This Hallway Called Earth

In this hallway called earth
a very modest and skinny road
we have made much bigger
with our own pride
the angels must joke
while simultaneously
weep at our error
they know Heaven
to be an endless universe
liberated from clocks
and watches
we strap around
us like girdles
they know it to be
a mansion of immense
proportions
heaven is not caged
in by boundaries
physical or political
heaven is the universe
immense
unlimited by our own
eyes
who have cut it off
like a snapshot
in our own minds
we too are more
than our photographs
or mere reflections
and we are more
than our suffering

Artist's Description

“For those who say such things declare plainly that they seek a homeland.
And truly if they had called to mind that country from which they had come out, they would have had opportunity to return.
But now they desire a better, that is, a heavenly country. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a city for them.
(Hebrews 11: 14-16)

From the larger work, “Stripes.”
