I gathered a little courage, holding my gaze as far as I could
The sight of edifices out of the ordinary met my gape
Then I thought for a second
The grandest of architects on miserable earth
Were light years away from heaven’s technology.
Each of these paradisiacal palaces
Were unique in their appearance
So that not one of them looked like the other
Yet I believe they numbered in their millions.
I fixed my curious eyes on one of them
This one looked like crystals of glass
Expertly manicured into a magnificent mansion.
I looked yet on another
Behold, it looked like precious stones of diamond
Were its foundations and walls.
Each of the mansions radiated a certain kind of glory
Each was different in brilliance and splendour
Then I thought, all the gold and skills of my little isle
Would not be enough to build one of these.
