Poem of the Day Banner: Be Hopeful

 

In the scene from Temptation, Vincent is showing Mouse the crystal he's chosen for Catherine anniversary gift. He's holding it out and Mouse is looking on.Mouse is looking up at Vincent, a serious question forming for him

What's it like ... to have a love?

 

Love Does That

by Meister Eckhart

All day long a little burro labors, sometimes
with heavy loads on her back and sometimes just with worries
about things that bother only
burros.

And worries, as we know, can be more exhausting
than physical labor.

Once in a while a kind monk comes
to her stable and brings
a pear, but more
than that,

he looks into the burro’s eyes and touches her ears

and for a few seconds the burro is free
and even seems to laugh,

because love does
that.

Love Frees.

Hi Robin, that was just so gorgeous. Reminds me of our ponies at Riding for the Disabled. The kids just love to give their ponies something special at the end of lessons. Thanks so very much, you read so very well.

We haven't met (yet!) but I already have reason to think you're as delightful as your Mom ;)
