"We Carry the Torch" from Story Paintings from the Heart
a collective spirit passed on to us.
As we learn and share, love and care,
the flame grows brighter.
When our turn ends, we will pass the torch,
and sit with the rest of the team
to watch and cheer on the next runner,
until the end of the race,
where there is only light,
when we rejoice and celebrate
in a time with no time, only love.
I envision all life forces on Earth
and on other planets
carrying torches of life,
each in their own way:
the brave dinosaur, the bold tree,
the graceful bird, and the hard-working ant.
Each torch growing stronger
within the individual,
family, community, and world.
I see God smiling, sometimes cheering loudly
from his owners box in the stadium.
At other times
he whispers softly to each runner,
glancing at his master plan on his lap,
tapping his feet
to the great pulse of life
that he created.
