So much is happening in the world
and instead of
… sharing concerns
… giving love
… receiving love
… expressing love in action, word, thought
fear and feelings of helplessness
permeate conversations and thoughts.
Oh, to be this kitten
embraced and protected by the dog.
Oh, to be this dog
taking comfort in the gentle breaths of the kitten.
… sweet friendship
Human animals can learn so much from non-human animals.
May we be open to learning from them.
May we be willing to put that learning into practice.
May it be so. Amen. May it be so.
