February Verse & View

There will come a time
(hopefully soon)
when you will celebrate
your broken places
as the best parts of you.

And you will bask (delighted)
in the unexpected glory
of accepting yourself
just as you are…

humble and strong,
powerful and sensitive,
gutted and transformed.

And you shall come
to understand your place
in the fascinating arrangement
of magical things in this
vast and amazing Universe
of which you have
always played a vital part.
