A Patio That Houses Heaven

A Patio That Houses Heaven

Would you like some wine with evening,

two or three bottles

and some splice of moon?

Would you mind the moon in its usual place

and a patio that houses heaven?

Would you like it on a slope

with the sky bending to you

as you serenely close your eyes,

where you can reach out and touch the stars?

Wouldn’t it be lovely where

the entrance is so welcoming, you don’t want to leave?
