• Jan Avellana

laughter in the eaves


heaven

is filled with

laughter dripping

down

from

the eaves.

it will greet me

with

wide margins,

and

endless fields

of tall grasses

swaying

on a feather’s breath,

and swaths

of quiet hush

and there are

a thousand

secret places

to be

and alone

but never

lonely.

and all

the words

i have

ever needed

will be there

in heaven

where

the eaves

drip

with laughter.
