Happy Mother's Day Sunday

                                        The Essence of Desire

                                                  I did not
                                have to ask my heart what it wanted,
     because of all the desires I have ever known just one did I cling to
                                       for it was the essence of
                                                 all desire:

                                          to hold beauty in
                                              my soul's

                                                   St. John of the Cross (1542 - 1591)


from Love Poems from God, Translated by Daniel Ladinsky
