Heaven: Desire’s Ascendancy (A Poem)

Heaven: Desire’s Ascendancy (Final Progression)

(Refrain Poetry)  © Biz Gainey, 2014

Desire ascends toward ageless wonder

Longing she flees world astray, bound by time

Old yearning’s damp dross melt ‘Neath the

Breadth of Dawn’s crystalline shine

Smiles dance on faces I know I’ve known

When all were painted, by grey gloss of night

Reminders of space once less well indwelled

Time less well spent oft lost in fright.

Desire ascends! on high sits enthroned

Fulfilled in his presence is creation’s deep groan!


Desire ascends sacred hall where I’m welcomed

Delight in this space where once lost I am found

Life’s ancient book bleeds true my borne name

Now I know fully as I’ve fully been known

Birthed anew, truth once shackled and fettered – leaps

Joyfully as one loosed, now unbound

Beauty restored on all seated at table

Invited by he whom we all adore

A silent hush falls on all we who gather as

Light’s sudden dance indulge the crisp air

Seated he feasts on all we before him

Consumed by deep love, filleted naked and bare

Desire ascends! on high sits enthroned

Fulfilled in his presence is creation’s deep groan!


Desire ascends -now knowing no fright

Sheds tattered-worn cloth; once lost in dark night

Awakened the dawn’s new-day temple

Where we behold life yet to come

Shiver and quake as faint flesh trembles

While deep delight brace taut every eye

And the eyes – they betray – as heart

Beats swift retreat, entranced is their gaze

Upon the one grand – enthroned

One crowned a King, worshipped. by

Nation-vast peoples; many tongues echo their cry

A loft in the realm of the northernmost sky

Desire ascends! on high sits enthroned

Fulfilled in his presence is creation’s deep groan!


Desire ascends as I’m now prepared

To soulfully stride as dawn’s new bride

Down ancient gemstone soaked aisle

The sacred song sings sweet, softly on high

Trumping dear tune: “My bride – in union now let us be wed”

My heart beats free in vibrant waltz I am quickened

Drink from deep well waters, drenched with Him I am wet

O, how the sights and sounds now rumble

From deep within do they grip my soul

Desire embraced she ignites cardinal longing

Joy gorged faint whispered memory of old

Primal love gently holds creation’s soul-full groan-caked sigh

I bow to one as king terribly calm upon throne

Anchored aloft in the grand Northern great sky

Desire ascends! on high sits enthroned

Fulfilled in his presence is creation’s deep groan!
