“Translucent”
6:30 AM 4/15/2011

Framed in white light
Standing in the sun
Holding up a little bit
Of heaven
And offering a bit more

Slowly fading back away
Offering a look at what
You might call eternity
A choice
Handed down from above

Laughing, holding up an
Existential gift of light
Looking down on us
Mere mortals
From atop a real pedestal
