A higher place

A good place to sit...(photo by Patty Perkins)

A higher place (photo by Patty Perkins)

Lead me to that higher place,

a ledge on which to stand.

There I’ll see your point of view,

the way to heaven’s land.


Lifted in the everyday,

paradigms open wide.

A fresh perspective is unpeeled,

when meeting him up high.
