He Knew How

He knew how to love a woman
His eyes loved only the scent of her pollen
No matter the beauty of the petals all around
He lightly touched her hair
And he whispered she would never be lonely
As he laid her stem before him on the silken ground

He knew how to love a sound
His soul was transformed into his fingertips
Like a beautiful woman in his hands
He caressed the discovery of our own being
And he soared within his own imagination
Speaking in a tongue the world could understand

He knew how to love his children
They were drawn to his vision of life
And guided by the lightest command
He could reach them with a smile
And in them he was well pleased
Just as the dove that landed on the lamb

He knew how to love his God
Even in the darkest of closets
For his humility burned bright
And he walked among the poor
For their pain was all that was real
And his mercies were truly of God’s light
