A Wise Woman’s Words

There is a brokenness ..
out of which comes the unbroken ..
A shattered-ness ..
out of which blooms the unshatterable..

There is a sorrow beyond grief..
which leads to joy ..
and a fragility out of whose depths..
emerges strength ..

There is a hollow space too vast for words..
through which we pass with each loss..
out of whose darkness ..
we are sanctioned into being ..

There is a cry deeper than all sound ..
whose serrated edges ..
cut the heart as we break open
to the place inside ..
which is unbreakable and whole ..
while learning to sing ..
