What happened today
the largest human gathering the earth
has ever known.
But who could weigh its heart?
God, by whatever name
or presence revealed-is manifest.
he, who inhabits Cosmos
in our stars, our soils, our heart,
invades out lives
insinuates into our inner ears
of long deaf-mutes
a living song-imbuing hate with joy
as deep into our lungs
he lives in our awakening limbs
that unites all distraught, divisive fear
into one fragrant flowering
What happened today gives us positive hope that we can now talk to each other as friends, as Americans who can share ideas, problems, and actions to help heal ourselves and our Earth.
