Respecting the awesome power of words!

Perfection

 

When it comes down
to it, perfection
is a heavy mortar,
cementing some of our
broken pieces into the most
inconspicuous places and
sweeping the rest
under the rug.

Thus frozen and divided,
we are stranded, and
of little use to self or others. 

Wholeness, on the other hand,
is a puzzle, free
to be rearranged
by divine shifts to fit
and fill empty places
in the universe.

Ours is a brokenness
whose purpose includes
the ingress and egress
of grace's tides.
