Earthen Pockets

With kindness of heart
And effervescence of mind,
The man looked around
Into the earthen pockets of humanity
To see if there was still room for him.
When he saw that there was,
Great joy grew in his heart,
And abounding love showed forth
From his eyes,
His words,
And his hands.
The great love of the Father
Catapulted him into the hearts and minds
Of millions
While resting in the abiding presence of the Almighty
He took to calling each
By name
And by purpose.
Who was this vessel for humanity?
It was you.
It was me.
It was the passing forth of God’s pure love
Through human forms
To other
Human forms.
That bit of humanity
And that bit of transference
Every time that love was shared.
