God’s meditation on Christ…


…creation itself
is simply His [God’s] meditation on Christ.

The seed in the earth is the unborn child.
The snow on the field is the Virgin’s mother’s purity.
The blood on the black thorn, flowering through the land,
His birth.
The falling of the red rose leaves foretells His passion,
the wheat is bound because He was bound,
it is threshed because He was scourged.
The fruit is red on the bough because He was crucified;
because He rose from the dead,
spring returns to us again.
~Caryll Houselander, _The Reed of God_

Oh, to share in that meditation!
