day 118

Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him; and he vanished from their sight.  Luke 24:31

when i can
      Hubbly see
      the far shores
      of the universe, but
         not the jagged
   edges of injustice;
when i can watch
      a microbe swim
      in the sea, but
         not the tear
   on a child's cheek;
when i can
      gaze at another
      with lust, never
   noticing their soul,

         open my eyes
that i may recognize
   in every one
       every where
       every moment.
