a new heaven and a new earth,
for the first heaven and the first earth
passed away; and there is no longer any sea.

Quiet
will fill the earth on that day.
The dream
that pulls trees from the cliffs
will cease.
Every road will lead to one city;
walkers will not lose themselves
in dreams anymore.
Prophecy
will end the tug of the night and the moon
and neither gulls nor men
shall cry on the shore.
This is the truth: that hearts will wake
untormented by time and desire.
In that day,
salt water shall flow no more.
