Unity in Divinity

 

The divine in me greets

The divine in you.

When we hug

The little nebula glowing within you

Aligns with my own, warm and alive.

Everyone has the same basic needs.

We are all drawn with the same line,

Divided out of the same number,

Poured from the same bottle,

Leaves on the same tree.

We are all notes on the same violin

By the same composer.

We move together en masse

We murmurate like starlings

We are a tidal wave.

What kinds of things could we do

If we all leaned in the same direction

If we all jumped at once?

Could we tilt the world?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

Our deadline

 

Humans shine brightest under pressure.

It’s not until we have a deadline

That we pick up our feet

It’s not until we get cancer

That we start to live

Maybe

When the world is on the brink of dying

When the atmosphere is choking us

When the plants wither

When disease blooms

When we are all facing starvation

Then we will rediscover world peace

True stewardship

And the meaning of community.

We will see our clear place in the world

Through dying eyes.

Perspective will heal our greed

For one last generation.
