cracked open

Today at dVerse we have a picture prompt from Mish, focused on the work of Ally Saunders.

My choice is the featured image above entitled ‘Cracked Open’



the (h)earth


by trembling hand

so vibrant and green

watered by a dripping


kaleidoscope of emotion

here the opening

the crack in the soul of it all

the vulnerable edge

unseen for the most part

here the giving

and the receiving

of life’s dance

here the flower bloom

fed by experience

lifted and unfolded from


into full-ness

into the light

here the circle

of it all

no beginning

no end

      It’s an idea I hold Dear, Frank and comes from the writings of Trungpa Rinpoche, who likes our pain to compost…fetile soil for new growth…It really spoke to me when I read it first.

    “the vulnerable edge”…that really spoke to me. There is so much that lies under the surface, ingrained that can leave us empty or strengthen us.
