SAINT FRANCIS AND THE SOW

The bud

stands for all things,

even for those things that don’t flower,

for everything flowers, from within, of self-blessing;

though sometimes it is necessary

to reteach a thing its loveliness,

to put a hand on its brow

of the flower

and retell it in words and in touch

it is lovely

until it flowers again from within, of self-blessing;

as Saint Francis

put his hand on the creased forehead

of the sow, and told her in words and in touch

blessings of earth on the sow, and the sow

began remembering all down her thick length,

from the earthen snout all the way

through the fodder and slops to the spiritual curl of the tail,

from the hard spininess spiked out from the spine

down through the great broken heart

to the blue milken dreaminess spurting and shuddering

from the fourteen teats into the fourteen mouths sucking and blowing beneath them:

the long, perfect loveliness of sow.

Song: “Hallelujah” by Jeff Buckley

Quote
"The female doesn’t want a rich man or a handsome man or even a poet, she wants a man who understands her eyes if she gets sad, and points to his chest and say : “Here is your home country.”"

TO GIVE ANIMALS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS A FOREVER HOME.
I am working on my degree in Veterinary Technology. When that is accomplished, I have plans to open a hospice/sanctuary for animals who are not adoptable due to age, illness, or temperament. If they are able to be rehabilitated, we will help them find new homes. With my degree I will be able to do all the basic veterinary care myself!
