For the time being the sun is out and temps are mild so I decided to focus on Spring and share something I wrote a long time ago ... it's not specifically about Spring but seemed apropos anyway ...
I really have no clue when it was written ... what I do know is it's never been shared publicly ... and it felt that the time had come ...Spring Has Sprung ...
Once upon a time, all God’s creatures
Human and not
Were like a medley of fruits
On the vines of God’s outstretched embrace.
One day, as part of some oddly Divine plan
The fruits fell off the vines
And sank into a strange amnesia
Of who they were and where they had come from.
While each and every variety
Was luscious and delectable on its own merits
They strained for a sense of superiority
One over the other.
God sat back and watched
At first mildly amused but
Gradually becoming dismayed
And then disgusted.
The situation had gotten completely out of hand.
Free will was not exactly working
In the Divine Right Order as anticipated.
Self will was running wild.
At first, God was at a loss as to what to do
Until one day, God turned to that which
God knows best to do.
He brought the rains, which turned into floods
Which gathered all the fruits together
Into one great mixture.
Then the baking sun warmed the mixture
And the cold wind cooled it back down.
What remained was a delicious nectar
Of all the individual fruits
One indistinguishable from the other
But each adding to the richness and
Uniqueness of the mixture.
God was pleased. All was one again.
And it was good!
