    "Rainbow's Visitation"

    She awoke in a conscious vision

    And carried to a place higher and beyond alpha

    Beyond death

     

    A man appeared

    Her first

    Speaking these words unto Rainbow’s heart:

     

    “Sweet child of peace

    Come unto me

    For it is your season of flight

    And I am Master of the angels

     

    Take with you a tear

    That it may be added to the others

    Waiting for the final cloudburst

     

    Tarry not

    Lest our pain be withstood

    Beyond the tolerable limits

    Of love’s longsuffering

     

    Now

    Do it now

    And be done with sorrows once
    And for all tomorrows”

     

    Upon awakening

    She rose and felt a tear

    Lingering on her right cheek

     

    It trickled down the blessed radiance of her face

    Where it was caught on the tip of her waiting tongue

    And swallowed

     

    The phone rang once

    Bringing a smile to Rainbow’s soul

    As she slowly removed herself from death’s bed

    And reached for yet another rung

    On the ladder to heaven

     

     

    John Christopher
