the good earth

 
squares of red paper are pasted all around the house.  the word 'happiness' printed on some, 'riches' on others- this is done for birth of a baby

on new years eve burn red candles and on new year's day - the children wear red clothes

from The Good Earth by Pearl S Buck

as if it were embroidered with flowers

 
it has to be loved as if it were embroidered with flowers and birds and two joined hearts upon it
this great beloved world
and all the creatures in it

and the hands keep on moving

more looking at wool cloth

 
 
 
 
the world is split open
and it is in our destiny to heal it
each in our own way
each in our own time
with the gifts that are ours
