love does that

All day long a little burro labors, sometimesburro

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.

~Meister Eckhart
