To the Browns Twenty-five Mesa
He presented to us
a bag of brown beans.
The work of growing food
begins with irrigating the fields,
then planting seeds…
and finally harvesting.
It is holy work,
like teachers and the holy men do,
the growing of food.
It Is something sacred:
work and joy together.

Loved this poem.. Holy work means so many things, and each of us has our own holy work – and whatever it is, it seems to be what we do with our whole heart and soul.. which is what dear Linda does ….
