A captured moment

I just wanna say
that sometimes heaven
is sitting on your sofa
watching The Addams Family
(for the hundred and twenty-first time
because that movie never gets old)
with your daughter and niece
with a warm wood fire going
as it pours outside.

If we sit still for long enough
heaven can find us
in the most mundane situations.
 

It’s that indistinct knowing
that hits you and says
all is well.

P.S. Raul Julia left this world far too soon. There is no other Gomez Addams as far as I’m concerned.

P.P.S. I have a theory that culturally speaking, in the US, Halloween is more Christian than Christmas. I’ll explain soon.
