All night I dreamed of heaven:
a blue space I drifted through, huge
enough to store everything.
I saw this world—pearl
of great price; ‘Body,’ Love said,
‘is the only boat
from which you can dive to find it.’
— Gregory Orr, from “Nantucket Morning/This World,” The Caged Owl: New & Selected Poems. (Copper Canyon Press April 1, 2002)
