Animal Kingdom 47 – Spider: Patience

spider

Sri Chinmoy wrote a fascinating little compendium on the spiritual meaning of animals which was published by Agni Press in 1973. Today’s poem features the spider.

Spider: Patience

Spider, my spider,
You build your home
With patience-light.
Against the speedy time
You and your confidence-fight.
You teach the world
What patience can do:
Build perfection’s kingdom pure and true.

Sri Chinmoy, Animal Kingdom, Agni Press, 1973
