snow joke


img ~


here i am

still and centered

and calm


all is perfect


until the world tilts

and shakes


and a blizzard of love

tumbles from the sky

obscuring what was

with its mystic crystal



i am taken apart

my heart cracking open

old and over used

in service of everyone


but me


it is done

and dusted

finally broken


a crack at first

and then a chasm


and what emerges

takes my breath away


a new heart

pink and vulnerable

for me


just for me


the love i feel


and i stumble

crying tears of gratitude

for all i have lost


and for this gem

i have now found


the snowflakes fall

more softly now

as if they know


it will all settle


as will i


Buddha still.
