Quantum Virtues

by Mark D. Stucky

The cosmos consists of infinite
             infinitesimal interactions
             of particles and energy.
The largest everything
             composed of smallest nothings.

An inner conviction rising above swirling seas of doubt.
A flickering candle pushing back shadows of twilight.
A kind word healing sorrows from the past.
Such elemental components
             of faith, hope, and love,
             are the smallest quanta of virtues,
             frail molecules of morality
             when isolated and alone,
             but when working collectively,
             in soulful synergy,
             emerge stronger,
             grow larger,
             sing louder,
             march bolder,
             connect wider,
             in one individual,
             with another person,
             then more people,
             and multitudes,
             among nations,
             joining together,
             gaining unity,
             multiplying power,
             moving mountains,
             transforming our world,
             and changing the cosmos.
