Paradise: Theme and variations

We are not one, but many --
many colors, shapes and sizes --
and in that rich profusion
many blessings do abound.
Do you, seeing you are different,
curse your loneliness and separation?
Or can you find a way to revel
in the unique role that you play;
in the special --and the holy --
contribution you can give?
And can you find a way
to rejoice in this diversity;
to celebrate the endless variations;
the symphony that is God's Glorious Garden?

Lovely for the Sunday. The colors are spirit-lifters on a gray and rainy day.
