tree haloed by cloud

Can we believe our eyes?
Is that a halo we see
or a trick of geometry?
Sometimes, suddenly, even
the dullest people we know
seem to shine, as though
we never really knew them.
Thank you, Lord, when
we can see your children
as they are, when love,
no longer a duty,
becomes a pleasure.
