Cracks and Holes

“Yes, we will all have cracks —
but that is how we break
without falling apart.” Timothy Joshua


Grief

largely ebbing

periodically flowing

from my imperfect heart

perhaps healing

but cracks and holes remain.

Holes

that permit

entrance

of light.

Light

that illuminates

memories.

Memories

that can

escape

through the cracks.

Escaping memories

that help

healing

and

thus produce

light.

… and so it goes

“Ring the bells that still can ring. Forget your perfect offering, There is a crack, a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.” Leonard Cohen – Anthem
