Love Does That.

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.

– Meister Eckhart

(on page 108 …how perfect….of “Love Poems from God” – Daniel Ladinsky – fabulously beautiful book…check it out).
