|This day the heavens open |
And a new sun breaks forth,
From shore to shore And from sea to shining sea.
This day we gaze across the skies
To see each other clad in golden rays of morning
With smiles of fulfillment,
Quickened by the salt spray
Rising from the granite cliffs
At the shores of our blue green home.
In the sight of stars and planets,
Arcturus and his sons,
Galaxies watch this day of celebration,
They laugh with stellar joy
To see us here now,
Face to face
Re-creating this precious planet
In our image
Even as we are re-created in thine,
O Lord most high,
Prince of peace
And the very soul of love.

It is my custom in this blog to reflect on passages from my book. Yet even though I chose to share this poem, I don’t have the heart to comment on a message that, for me, stands on its own.
So, I’ll just say, I hope you enjoy the poem.
Every human being is already a sun on the inside—a being of intense love and light. The difference is that some people have the vision and courage to become a sun on the outside. This difference is our human destiny.
