The realm of God

is a party

and everyone’s invited[1]


Decked out in festive gear

of rainbows and heliotrope

sunflower or borage

planet blue, earth green or sunset red


Tranquil or boisterous,

everyone joins in:

there are no gate crashers in

the kingdom of love


Sharing sparkling wine and conversation

small talk that’s quite profound

comparing lives

naming our common ground
