A Visit To Heaven

I went to visit heaven
From an invitation in a vision
I could show you the invitation
But you wouldn't understand it

                    Oh, well, here it is anyway

  

  You are hereby invited to heaven
It is time for you to have your wings to be fitted
We will see you soon.
     Peter

Are you surprised it's not in English?
As you know, when you have a vision
It is translated for you, like this:

 You are hereby invited to heaven
It is time for you to have your wings to be fitted
We will see you soon.
     Peter

    • Note there is no Saint by Peter
Over there they think we are quaint
With our hierarchical designations.


On earth we think of heaven
As a wonderful place
Let me tell you (I wish I could).
Our language does not have that capability
To describe heaven.
It would look like gibberish as in the invitation.
They wanted me to have a picture to show on earth
Of my fitting of the wings.
Earthly vision does not replicate heavenly vision.
But one of the angels wrestled with a human camera
What you see to the left is what she came up with
It was the best she could do with the limits
Of the earthly contraption.

Thus, I was sent back to complete my mission.
