I See A World

I see a world

in which source flows through us in its fullness,

and there is no separation between you and me,

only the refracted beauty of Creation's pleasure,

and there are no outer enemies except poverty, homelessness,

and loveless ness.
I see a world where children are nurtured tenderly
like the seeds of the earth,
where they worship once again outside walls,
among trees and groves, beneath sun and moon,
as in the ancient days
where they call the Deity in themselves
through scent of flowers,
 through song,
through sacred dance,
through each other's eyes.
In such a world
 the earth is loved as our own bodies
and it is healed of the blood of ages,
so that nature is no longer stricken.
Instead daily it is revitalized by reverence
and the water's diamond face is seen again
and the wind that weaves its path through lungs
and rock caverns is pure again.
And all life communes with all life.
 
The language of trees is remembered again

and the beasts

 of land and air and water
can trust their spirits to us again.
In such a world there are no nations,
only one world
with beings who recognize each other as the Self.
Make strong the fields of harmony round the earth.
Then the long awaited vision of Archangels
will come to pass,
the world turned right side out.
I see this world.
It can happen.
It can happen, if you see it too.
