Enclosed is another poem called “Abounding” that we appreciate our wondrous diversity “for the light to shine.”




Dawning day beckoning

rising with anticipation

of surprises beholding

dreams achieving


Smiling serenely

interior joy apparent

gifted from above

divine indwelling


Swelling the heart

love expanding

pledged to all

freely given


Expecting no return

only desired union

of sister and brother

living peacefully


Scars of struggle

leaving behind

countless signs

Your presence abiding


Embarking together

on compassion’s journey

committed solidarity

with beloved poor


Equality among people

diversity abounding

poignant opportunity

for light to shine
