REFLECTION

All creation

sings Your praise

 

Wind

whispers

shrieks

hums

 

waves reflect heartbeat of the universe

waterfalls thunder

streams babble and gush

 

Flowers

their beauty

 

Trees

their majesty

 

Animals flow

with life force

 

People worship

in a thousand thousand traditions

 

Each bountiful community

loving each other

and You

 

Orchids don’t criticize daffodils

 

Wind doesn’t condemn water

 

Each reflecting glory

 

Where then do ugly words come from

apostate

infidel

heretic

heathen

 

Blind to relationships

 

We all are

beloved sister and brother

cherished companions

 

Part of me

 

I a reflection of you

You a reflection of me

 

Let us search

for a hymn

we can all sing

 

In glorious harmony

 

Praising God

as fittingly

as a flower

HURTLE

My heart is full of joy

I revel in ecstasy

For God loves me

I carry that piece of god’s love

deep in my soul

Flowing

Warming

Mine

God is in me

Never to be taken away or lost

I AM

A piece of the universe

hurtling through

Pulled by the spark within me

to that great conflagration

Thank you

oh thank you

my beloved

SKY

sky sighed to the earth

let us make a world

 

mountains thrust

 

wind and rain

so soft

weak

 

wore down all

 

made

sand

rivers

 

primordial soup

 

fed by sunlight

warm

nurturing

 

the mind of God

a million million years ago

 

planned a cell

 

life began

 

evolving

 

till capable of carrying

a soul

 

container for speck

of God’s love

 

so we could love in return

 

adding a particle of love

to the universe
