When God

Says sky to pond, Do trees go off in search of happiness? Do stones?
No, the pond replies. But see how the river runs — and how it would stay, if it could.

 
When God

When God was a little boy
he threw a stone into a pond
and that is the history
of this world.

When God was a little girl
she invited everyone to tea
and that is the history
of this world.

When God was a young man
he grew impatient and hurried ahead
and that is the history
of this world.

When God was a young woman
she gave birth to ten thousand dreams
and that is the history
of this world.

When God was an old man
he tried but could not remember
and that is the history
of this world.

And when God was an old woman
she was a great seer and healer
and that is the history
of this world.
