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
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.
