|Ascension, by Salvador Dali|
Lost to sight in the clouds!
jet propelled like a human rocket
to return to –
Is this how it was,
Caught up into all the glory of God
and so here –
no longer imprisoned by physical limitations:
One with the Father,
into the Godhead
all that it means
to be human.
And so I know,
that I am known,
by the Almighty;
— Edmund Banyard, in his anthology, Turn But a Stone.
