Irises with Ladybug ~ Philip Brent Harris

Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength, 
Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment



Now the grasses dance, the wind sings
Music of warbling birds, the cricket chorus
Here, now; no other place exists for us
Joined in experience, each experience unique
Others completely different, separate, alone
Yet all the same, all connected at the core
A scripture says, love thy neighbor as thyself
Not meaning as another, alike but not
But truly as ourselves, so deep we ignore it
The self, the only being, life, alpha and omega
Not deity but the totality of creation, time
Seeing our cosmos, dark and light, always
In the beginning, creation a crawling baby
Each state equal and equally acceptable
Growing gradually into adolescence, maturity
Some born into the light, some into darkness
Confused yearnings, desire to control
Until the universe grows amorphous
All light, all heat, singular in death
Every individual being which has lived
A single spark remains, draws all toward home
Compressing time, all that ever existed or could
Until the cosmos exists in a single moment
Until tension drives possibility into genesis


Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength, 
Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment
