At Heaven’s Gate

Ebbs and flows of cotton waves
Laces round her lofty crown
Sweeping down azure nave
Silky train of Gaia’s gown

Awestruck mortals congregate
Hearts in tune with timeless chants
Burdens laid by Heaven’s gate
Raptured into cosmic dance


Colin Lee


Note: Inspired by dVerse’s Meet the Bar with Impressionism, I recalled the divine experience I had atop the snow-capped Jade Dragon Mount in Yunnan (as pictured) … and got myself bizarrely carried away from the suggested theme of impressionism! Nevertheless, it was jolly good fun crafting this metrically smooth poem.
