What will the purest girl in the world say
Once she’s arrived?
I think she’ll speak from the pure and loving heart of Jesus –
Be balanced and sane as the Buddha –
And “hear” God perhaps more clearly than Mohammed –
And more – she’ll tell us her own thoughts.
Pure as a tumbling mountain stream
Refreshing as first sight of sparkling ocean waves
Radiant as sun pouring through shimmering green leaves –
She’ll come – and refresh our hearts.
Our present society is reliant upon the continual creations of science and technology
To address any problems we believe may be unsolvable –
And resolutely looks to its ever-growing prosperity and magical-seeming inventions
To save us – but, intuitively, we know there will be no true salvation
Based solely upon material innovations.
Perhaps we need to start looking in another direction entirely –
For example, to the arrival of “the purest-hearted girl in the world” –
Who’ll be bringing us the spiritual gifts we need to survive –
And who’ll patiently explain the answers to our many unanswered questions.
She’ll be gentle, manifesting as Love (yes, with a capital “L”) –
Know just what we need –
And be willing to bring it –
Quietly and joyfully.
