I ask the storyteller sitting ’round the tree trunk to tell me of the origins of humankind’s awakening to the great part we — each individual — play in life, in the Bible story. Were we aware of reading our souls in scripture before Christ came? When and how did we begin to know and have the first heart-tears cried having found the truth? That I, for instance, comprise every name in the book and forever in God’s love…
A robin tells the blue spruce your secret,
The tree is tickled and the songbird is glad.
