    I ‘m moving yet I’m not walking
    Lying horizontally I see all
    Feel the tears of emotional outpour
    Hear words of those who seem not to know me
    Music playing
    Singing
    Yet from whence it comes I know not
    Soft kisses to the cheek
    Yet I cannot reciprocate
    Can’t even speak
    Moving yet again still not walking
    Images of buildings and city streets
    I know this place and yet again I don’t
    Stopped moving
    In the distance
    The sound of the waves of the sea is no more
    Unusual for its roar never ceases
    Yet for some reason its quiet
    Voices
    Crying
    Praying
    In the distance I see a lighthouse
    Its beacon dimmed
    As if never to shine again
    In the air
    A friend flies to a magical kingdom in the sky
    Yet he stops to circle overhead
    Brother not in his usual place of watching
    But for some reason he is here with me
    Puzzling
    Confusing
    Then
    Out of nowhere
    Darkness
    Covering
    Can’t breathe
    But there is no need
    Light shining
    Is it the Lighthouse?
    No
    Brighter
    Blinding
    Glorious
    Warming
    Transmuting
    Instilling in me true love

    Thanks Rich...Every now and then I think of my own mortality and the glorious renewing that is to take place in after I leave this world.

    interesting...

    Bishop...
    as we cannot see ourselves
    beyond our existence today...
    right now
    we think we
    can live forever...
    doing whatever
    not caring...ever

    good...writing...

    a vision beyond~
