We are Trees of Life,
Our leaves healing for the nations,
Invitations to look inside
The sacred temple,
God’s favorite home,
And discover
On the “we’ve become one”
Level,
The knowing of our true selves—

The names behind
Every skin tone,
Fashion style,
Accent,
Recipe,
Family history
Sought to be understood,
And celebrated
For what they are
And will be.

What a beautiful
Neighborhood market—
Fruit picked from the branches
To fill the kitchens
Of guests who enter in,
Hungry for flavor and nutrition
Only you or I
Can give
Because it’s only in the
Enjoying of each other
That heaven can
Exist.
