The Fullness Of Our Humanity


There is a certain kind of rightness

when the rain pours and flowers bloom.

There is gentleness when moonlight quietly slips

through a slightly opened window.

Everything perfectly connects

in the highest order of things.

They are deep expressions of goodness

given to us many, many years ago

as a matter of affection planned even before

everything came into being.

It reminds us of our origin, our lost innocence

and re-introduces us to wonder,

to wonder like a child once again.

This is how we properly address the fullness

of our humanity.

  2. This is one of the most beautiful reflections I have read Virgilio. Every word is dipped in light and wonder. I am deeply and warmly comforted reading this. Love it. Sharon
