On Noticing

A poem I used this week. Written by St. John of the Cross (1542 – 1591), a Spanish Theologan and Mystical Poet.

I offered it with a group to invite attention to being good noticers. Which is so much the work of being in community together.

May it inspire.

A Rabbit Noticed My Condition
(From Love Poems From God)

I was sad one day and went for a walk;
I sat in a field.

A rabbit noticed my condition and
came near.

It often does not take more than that to help at times —

to just be close to creatures who
are so full of knowing,
so full of love
that they don’t

they just gaze with
marvelous understanding.
