For a Beloved Friend whose son was suddenly killed in a car accident.

Holy Wisdom and Prayer

There is a brokenness out of which comes the unbroken,

A shatteredness out of which blooms the unshatterable.

There is a sorrow beyond all grief which leads to joy,

And a fragility out of whose depths emerges strength.

There is a hollow space too vast for words,

Through which we pass with each loss,

Out of whose darkness we are sanctioned into Being.

There is a cry deeper than all sound,

whose serrated edges cut the heart as we break open

To the place inside which is unbreakable and whole,

While learning to sing.
