St. Thomas Aquinas - We are fields before each other

How is it they live for eons in such harmony -
the billions of stars -

when most men can barely go a minute
without declaring war in their mind against someone they know.

There are wars where no one marches with a flag,
though that does not keep casualties
from mounting.

Our hearts irrigate this earth.
We are fields before
each other.

How can we live in harmony?
First we need to

we are all madly in love
with the same


(Love Poems From God: Twelve Sacred Voices from the East and West 
by Daniel Ladinsky)
