AFTER THE RAIN

   
What if one morning, 
when the coverlet of rain recedes
 and the sun offers its fiery feathers
 on the white altar of a gardenia, 
you were to discover
 that you are not what you seem to be? 
  What if you were to believe
 deep in your heart that you are

a spirit, 
divinely dressed in a cloak of humanity, 
here on earth
 for seventy or eighty years
 to bless everyone you meet
 with heavenly love?  
 What if this were your only intention, 
simple and true?
   O how the meadowlark, 
cardinal, and field sparrow 
would play the blue lute of the sky.  
 O how your life would change.
