POD (Poem Of the Day)
~I drag the large stones to higher ground
I plant my seeds
& carry the balance of the elements
In my hands to bless them…
I linger with the moist black
Secret smell of earth
Before I stand upright
Leaving the imprint of my knees
In the mud…

May love of hearts reach out to love of souls
May warmth of love ray out to Spirit-light
Even so would we draw near to you
Thinking with you Thoughts of Spirit
Feeling in you the Love of Worlds
Consciously at one with you
Willing in silent being. ~Rudolf Steiner
