Divine Inclusivity, A Sonnet

Thank you, Jesus, for your brown skin;
you take in and reflect out everything —
the whitest of white, the blackest of black
and everything in between.

Thank you for your brown eyes;
you take in and reflect out everything —
the bluest of blue, the blackest of black
and the lovely, hazel green.

Thank you for the now healed wounds;
you take in and reflect out everything —
the freshest flesh, the deepest red
all the colors our wounds have been.

Thank you for helping me see
in you everyone who has been and will be.
