Walking with my best friend
Promised forever true to the end
We'd discuss psychic emanations
Politics, Life and Religion
As we were walking in field of wheat
I felt windy kiss upon my cheek
As I was fingering a leaf
Pondering my disbelief
Turn to my friend of longtime cheer
Finding that she wasn't there

Yeah, good one! What exactly happened to her?

Well...I think the following will explain this poem a bit more:

Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left. Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come.

Matthew 24:40-42 NIV

Wow ... I never would have gotten that if you hadn't explained it ... what a hauntingly "normal" way to explain the rapture ...

Nice work ... I am duly impressed.

Good grief I didn't get that either, glad you explained that one Ali.  I really enjoyed it even more on second read.

Wow...I had forgotten I had written this one.  This was a few months prior to Spiritual being created.

Well, I thought the title explained it quite aptly.

I much enjoyed this, but I think...um,with the perspective that you have today...

I would love to see what you would do with this, re-worked?

(banal, me arse, too )

I could see this written as a three parter actually, if you explored pre-trib, mid-trib, and post-tribulation theory of Rapture....hmmm?

*battin' eyelashes*

(trying to tempt ya bro)

enjoyed
