Shards of God’s love

Shards of God’s love
shining in each beating heart
a seed of heaven planted,
within the clay of each one

Needing to be tended
to be fed with your love
his breath giving us life
all of us connected
to our creator, to all eternity

If we could but see
that light in our neighbors
how different would the world
would all life be

As to the least of these
the savior will say in the gathering
bringing the sheep in
to the gates of heaven

How many more
would be gathered in
if the words of the judgment
were understood by man

A hint of divine truth
the connectedness of creation
the creator in each beating heart
in the face of every stranger
