Impressive imprint.

Heather Lydia Thornhill 1981 (Manchester)

Meeting God was like touching the chest of roses closed and strong, robed in thorns.
All the Arch angels and angels. All the people. All the animals, fish and birds.
Living their way. Hailing the king of the universe.

Footsteps remaining like golden feathers
floating in a mothers handprint and then laid one by one, covering the earth in full flurishment of life. A world of sky scrapers opening pathways to light.

Like walking on wings that might take off into the sunrise and slide on the rays of light heading to heaven.

You sense that there is more.
You turn around.
The gates of heavens light open in your mind brighter, regal.
Angels appear pointing praying hands to Enter Here!

What if? you ask...
But you are!

He says.
I send my caresses to you on the love I surround you with too.
So that it bursts your love into two.
Doubling the love you've found for me.
Between us, the air and the ground.
Hear this most beautiful sound...
I love you.
I have fulfillingly.
And I always will.
Know me now or return to walk on the wings of angels.
