relic

Post any poetry here. It's just too hard to define "inspired" in this context, so we will settle for that which inspires.

they say a rolling stone gathers no moss
well,
i know what i am.
i'm a fractured relic planted firmly in the ground
and the pains of this world have opened my heart
to the ecstasy of love...

Eric,
You would not believe how long I contemplated this poem. In my reading last night there was a quote about the importance of a person knowing his true self, alas searched the pages, but couldn't find it... maybe it was from the night before. As I've spent many hours soul searching lately, it seems every time I read your poem I get a slightly different meaning.

It's quite amazing, really, the realizations you've made! I swear the picture pulses when looking at it.


Love, peace and courage to you,
Kim

It seems the photo you chose is perfect for your poem... I can almost feel the love flowing from the cracks that life and living produced. Wonderful poem...maybe it is life and living that truly help us to understand love. In that case I am glad to be a puny mistake plagued mortal of this little blue planet.

Love,
Sandy

Eric,
So, not only do the cracks let light come in, reaching those recesses deep within, it also lets the light flow out to those around us and eventually filtering into the universe.

What a blessing it is for us to try and be light workers.... How I do hope that everyone is having a light filled day.

Love,
Kim

Eric,
More and more I'm reading about the cracks in our armor and encrustments, allowing in light and love. Every time I think of your poem and the cracked pot.

Thanks again for posting it,
Kim

Dear Kim,

Those cracks help us realize there is only Love.

I am beginning to feel, so long as one is living according to their Heart, God will sort things out. Place Faith in this, as Child of God would remind us, Let Go and Let God.
