“…the beauty of diversity, the holiness of essence,
and the evolutionary pull of communion.”
— Sr. Joan Brown, Franciscan
He looks around and sees so much green, so much red,
the vast spectrum of light;
he holds still and hears bird song, laughter, cries,
barking, waves crashing, lightning cracking,
thunder roaring, symphonies playing;
he sees diverse forms, animals, architecture, plants,
fish, the human race in all its glorious ethnicities….
He feels the blood beat of life in all;
he hears the breath of life in all;
he inhales the glorious scent of life in all;
he touches the earth and reaches to the sky;
his arms swirl in it all….
He embraces the Whirling Dervish love that
dances in, through, under, over, around all — the
glorious creation imbued with eternity —
Infinite, Immanent and Intimate.
