    A Heart to Heart

    High above arched mountaintops
    where slope the sunlit green treetops
    and Sky's foundation, made of blue,
    is Heaven's bottom floor.
    A spiral staircase lead straight up
    and smelled of fresh cake uncorrupt
    and emptied to a chambered room
    just past a chambered door.

    A giant scale loomed silent there
    suspending plates each side on air
    and Osiris sat a jewelled throne
    of gold and blue and red.
    My time was up. It was too late
    to change my Life, to change my Fate
    when Anubis, large with jackal ears,
    said "Here we judge the Dead."

    "One side the scale is placed your heart
    wherein wisdom rests from end to start.
    Man fools himself and thinks to gain
    but wisdom rests not in the brain.
    Lightened is the heart that lifts Humanity
    from evil, waste and a world's insanity.
    Heavy is the heart that drags Man down
    to selfishly gain some feeble ground."

    "And no lie or alibi from them fails to dupe
    the scale's prime measurer, the Feather of Truth.
    For a lightened heart will not the Feather overtip
    but one made heavy will the scale down dip
    and the Devourer will come, croc jaws ice cold,
    to eat hearts heavy made by deeds of heartless Souls.
    But the lightened heart will pass to a cosmic clime
    where Souls commune the universe 'til Resurrection time."

    "Now your hour has come and you tremble with Fear.
    They're bringing your heart. It's close. It's near.
    You've had a lifetime of heartbeats, true and untrue,
    now their worth against the Feather is the measure of you."

    "Step forward !"

    Namyh

    Ah ... to be judged in the Egyptian afterlife, with the entire Egyptian Pantheon looking on, at that. How will a person be judge when their time is up ... it depends on the person, and the deeds done in this life. This was a nice write my friend ... keep cre8'in.

    Rich – I know! I know! Just when everyone hoped to avoid judgement day’s moments and seconds, I have to come along with this reminder. Consider it a head-start, no more a heart-start, for those of us who desperately need it.(LOL). I’m so glad this grabbed ya Rich. Hope it helps. Thanks for the “wow”. HH

    sweetapplepie – We all had better enjoy that yummy fresh baked cake before we are asked to “Step Forward” for the dispensation of our Fate. Good and bad, selfish and unselfish will register on the scale measured by the Feather of Truth. After that, no need to worry about urgency. Biologically, your heart may weigh 10-12 ounces but I like the 1 ounce it weights personally. Thanks sweetapplepie for your slice of enjoyment. Namyh

    Queentswana – When the drill sargent said “Okay who wants to volunteer?” and the whole of humanity took one step back leaving me standing front and center, I looked around and saw you standing there too and felt a lot better. Thanks. The next poetic drop will be thinking of you because you took that bold step forward Queentswana. Hope this put a bounce in your step and one in your enjoyment too. HH
