Close to death, nearly five years ago
I saw and studied a single blade of grass
for a very long time, it was so beautiful, so much color,
whilst I was in a coma.

I just knew that blade of grass was in heaven.
It was wonderful.
I was in heaven!

I observed that single blade of grass for a very ling time.
While I was in heaven.
I saw three white tulips… And three stone steps.
While I was in heaven.

Then I saw a path that led to my house.
While I was in heaven.

My house, one of many mansions,
Was made of glass,
While I was in heaven.

The glass was held together with bright fire engine red metal.
While I was in heaven.
I saw the number eight slightly on its side
on the door.
My body was in room number eight
While I was in the ICU
And on my way to heaven.

Living water ran through the house
There was no kitchen
While I was in heaven.

There were gold chains with gold goblets
To feed on the living water… So incredibly delicious.
While I was in heaven…

Thank you God for a “glimpse on heaven.”
While I was in heaven,
I was in heaven.
