If Someone Cried In Heaven

St. Catherine of Siena is author of this short poem. She lived in the 1300s in Italy, and was said to have profound interest in all of the humans that came before her.

I was thumbing through several poems yesterday and today. Looking for a few to take with me to the next two events that I get to be a part of. And wanting to the feel the energy of poetry. Less mechanics and tasks. More presence and simplicity.

This poem makes me laugh. Makes me smile. For me it is more about being able to see bigger pictures, whether within Christian traditions or other larger narratives of life.

If Someone Cried in Heaven

If you cried in heaven, everyone
would laugh

for they would know you were just
kidding.
