Selfless Service

    “Selfless Service,” New Era, Feb. 1997, 51

    Selfless Service

    It’s that feeling when you know

    you have done something right.

    It twinkles and breathes in your


    It spirals and shines through your


    It weaves with all goodness exposed

    in smooth melody.

    And you feel like all the warmth

    of the world gathered up tight

    and you know you are blossoming,

    ready to sprout with love’s wings.

    You are unthawed,

    pristine water

    Cajoling life everywhere—

    at least in yourself.

    Cleansing anywhere,

    like scouring floods of sunlight—

    you are cleansing yourself.
