A NEW WORLD ORDER

Children at the top.
Our teachers of innocent joy.
Our pedagogues of playful happiness
as we love them, and nourish
their God-given needs.
Their pace is a tree’s pace,
the speed of flowers opening.
We build life around them:
centers of color, paint splashed on walls,
wild kites and crazy creations:
exuberance of fun.
Learning the essential things first:
wonder, playfulness,
the safety of Love.
Who could have guessed
that awe is the door to holy Presence,
or that this joy would be
the highest state of being?
Seeing all, as if for the first time,
the magic is so real:
Infinite fields of stars;
a trillion galaxies expand in limitless space.
A splash of sunlight dies in our skin
and is reborn in bones.
Birds sing in our brains
as blue sky showers…
souls shine.
A little child looks up and laughs.
“I see Jesus again,”
someone sings.
He is laughing as us.
