Bits

 

IMG_3774

All of us have hardened places

inside:

the disappointments and fears;

calcified, stony spots

of self-defense

so natural

that we do not even think about what it is we are defending.

 

Fortunately

there are bits and holes

tiny spots broken

where the rain

and soil

bore in

and make tiny holes

larger over time.

 

These grace-bits

are where life

is lived.

 

Don’t be afraid of the

bits.
