Daily Reflection — A heaven of peaches

An Episcopal priest I met at Wild Goose shared this with me.  It really touched me, as I imagine what it is like for Kat to continue on in the next world.

Meeting In A Part – by Wendell Berry

Lone Tree In Mist And Sunlight; Cahir, County Tipperary, Ireland

In a dream I meet
my dead friend. He has,
I know, gone long and far,
and yet he is the same
for the dead are changeless.
They grow no older.
It is I who have changed,
grown strange to what I was.
Yet I, the changed one,
ask: “How you been?”
He grins and looks at me.
“I been eating peaches
off some mighty fine trees.”

Pfirsich - Malum Persicum
