italy! 2007 010

The wise ones, self-proclaimed

and otherwise,

extol the gems

we’ll find tucked in the jagged places

of our lives.


They profess the riches we will

meet spelunking

in caliginous caves

of personal pain and diving the deepest

wells of our grief.


Starting with a broken heart

makes the trek

more meaningful,

the sages say, as if they know

we will not break


from anguish of the broken world

we darkly dwell

in every day,

but find, instead, an unobstructed oculus

to light the way.
