Spilling Light

Sometimes
I see how broken I am.
I know, I know...
it's the broken spots
spilling the light.
It's the cracks
where we get to glow...
beauty in the common dark.

Sometimes
the brokenness is all I see.
I feel deeply
every flaw,
each raised white scar...
and then
all I know
is I am not whole, complete.

I know
how to be happy
in the quiet, shaded places
of my life.
I can hum along
delighting
in a simple beauty,
curling like a mist through my life.

I can
gently heal through
breath and thought,
the rough edges
the torn and muddy tangles...
easing impossible knots
to silken strands in easy steps.

But sometimes,
even so,
all I can see is how broken
and inadequate,
how fragile I am
and I remember
the scars I carry ever on.

Thanks so much for your time in reading and commenting. It is so nice to hear the voice of another in regard to writings. I am grateful. Hopefully there will be a few more voices still echoing around here... Peace!

Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.
