Light's Journey

Andrew Wyeth, The Revenant, 1949 Magpie #82
Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering.
There is a crack in everything,
That's how the light gets in.
~Leonard Cohen

Light's journey like hope radiates outward penetrating all openings every splintered gap each and every crack broken boards and broken hearts reaching all points of breach until the farthest place is attained then like karma on the passage back it's illumination reflects like glass a brilliant glimpse of hope.

The Beauty In Wreckage

Magpie Tales #81
"There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle.” ~Albert Einstein

We may see rubble, and the remnants of what was, but God can make miracles out of tragedy.
I am certain of this for I have seen it with my own eyes.
It is like a greener pasture after a wild fire,
or the hightened senses of the blind.
It is the true brilliance of a savant,
or how calamity brings together nighbors to restore and build again.
It is an unexpected child that teaches us what love is
You can call it what you want, or see it how you choose,
but some of the most inspiring people I have ever known
had a past, or sorrow that was a true suffering to maneuver through.
But they did it
and that gives me hope...
yes, there is beauty in wreckage
for that is what miracles are made of.

The Smile of God

Poets United Think Tank #64 Sunflowers
When I look at the stars  I see the twinkle in God's eyes  peering up at the mountains I see His great might looking into the forest I see his outstretched hands admiring the ocean before me I feel His hope where I stand observing all creation I see God's confirmation of life for when I view one sunflower I capture a glimpse of His smile.

Earth laughs in flowers.  ~Ralph Waldo Emerson,
