“What is `spirituality’? Does it matter much today?
And what is something `sacred’? Is it black and white…or grey?”
These were the queries of a youngster, and gave me pause for thought;
And as I rummaged through my mind, I found the words I sought.
“Spirituality is a relationship ‘twixt the Universe and you,
And how you behave will manifest, no matter what you do!
It’s a friendship with creation – with stones and plants and trees,
With birds and deer and butterflies…and even bumblebees;
It’s knowing that the life you have, is found in them, as well;
It’s awareness that creation is found in every realm,
And that all of it is sacred and all of it’s divine!
That means it’s very special – and will be for all time!
The answers to your questions are both black and white, and gray,
As spirituality and sacredness depends on you…each day!”
I pondered well his queries as he slipped out the door,
And wondered if I’d answered well – or if I should say more…
But looking out the window, I saw him smile at me,
And knew that I’d said plenty, as he reached out and hugged a tree!
