Who are they?


They are only human, still.

Raw products of His creation and evolution—
flesh and blood mortals—who are invited to chart
His seas of affection, His oceans of devotion,
in their shared existence.


Briskly put upon the intricate road to perfection,
but awaiting a warm welcome in Eternity,
these heirs to His universes
fit their appreciation of His Great Gifts
in but an eggcup, still.
