Evening Chanting

Through the cracks
And gaping wounds
Of a broken heart

Gratitude and joy
Flow openly

Thank you for this wonderful set of new poems. I'm sitting in a hotel in Philly, far from the comforts of home in Seattle, and these seem especially deep and poignant right now.

Reminds me of how I felt on retreat recently, after letting go of some very ego-driven notions. Thanks for reminding me, that an open heart is a broken one.

Was it Spike Milligan who said "Blessed are the cracked, for they let in the light"?

Nope, just googled it -- Grouch Marx :)
