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

snow-flakery

 

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

opens

and what emerges

takes my breath away

 

a new heart

pink and vulnerable

for me

 

just for me

 

the love i feel

overwhelms

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

eventually

as will i

 

Buddha still.
