Is it light becoming Love that breaks us, then?

and this being human an essential

container in which Love

might become Real

like the velveteen rabbit, Divine Love matured

on the crucible of humanity

transformed within our experience here of tragedy

betrayal, heartbreak, loss

into these jewels –

compassion, forgiveness, tenderness, and mercy –

until this fragile blessed container becomes too constricted to withhold

Love’s exponential growth, at last breaking

open from within to reveal the hidden

My question then is this? Is it the breakage that inspires Love’s becoming

or growth in Love that forges the crack?

And is the crack where the light gets in

or out? And do we say

yes to this breaking open

before we are stuffed into these skins

shoved through this needle’s eye of birthing
