WE ALL KNOW WHAT TRUTH IS

We all know what Truth is – when we hear it –
It’s shocking –
Especially to the person who first expresses it.

We all know what Love is –
Sweet –
The sweetest thing ever –
Even more than the earliest appearances of mother
And, certainly, more than an elegant blue Tiffany box
Containing the hoped-for gift of our dreams.

Beauty is on the rise, too, isn’t it?
Coming in like the tide –
A surprise to be opened first thing in the morning –
Discovering the friend you’ve waited your entire life to meet –
And it’s you! –
The person you never expected to encounter “face to face.”

Sometimes, people come into the world surrounded by radiance –
With the kind of beauty that shows they’re one of God’s best friends –
They stay awhile – but aren’t recognized by anyone –
Even though they’re “seen,” in passing, by literally everyone.

You can identify them by the spiritual “odor” they leave behind –
When, later on, you start wondering –
Really, who was that?

One thought on “WE ALL KNOW WHAT TRUTH IS

  1. Lovely, truly lovely.

    Personally, I have been blessed by having encountered many, many people who you have described in your writings…they all add ‘color’ to my black and white life. They expose me to a ‘standard’ of what it means to be ‘human’, one which I try to emulate. I am beyond grateful for their existence.
