Spectral Plane

Spectral Plane

A Poem by Rita L. Sev
"

.

"

When time to board the spectral plane,

No need for boarding pass

Don’t fret that you’ll be crammed in coach;

This time you’ll go first class

Best of all, no baggage ~

You leave it all behind

And the film that they’ll be showing

Is your life ~

“Best of” rewind.

The pilot knows the heavens well,

The journey will be swift

The love and prayers back on the ground

Give spirits proper lift

Thank you, Eddie - I still may get to that other piece, but this one had to come out first!
I like it. What a benign and peaceful picture. I far prefer it to one of a punitive god looking to micro-manage my sins based on maxims and dogma I have never understood. It's a really good thing Jesus came along to make that whole scene more appealing. Yep, I am going to accept your poem as the way to go.

Thank you, Anand. Even with philosophically heavy topics, I try to keep them light... :)
I'm not entirely sure what a spectral plane is but I interpret it to mean not of this world. In any case, the first line kicks off a clever play on words. I like the image of the love and prayers from the ground. Great, uplifting poem.

The "spectral plane" is supposedly the spiritual space occupied by the dead (or, where ghosts exist).. read more
