the lines around a heart

do you see the heart in the image above?

the lines
around a heart
can be drawn
and
joined
by
cracks,
formed
by
cracks.
true,
yes?

this beauty revealed itself to me while i walked to the gym in the quiet, early morning two sundays ago.

what beauty is revealing itself to you today?

*
today,
like so many,
i am thinking about
Martin Luther King, Jr.
his words.
his courage
in sharing
his dream.
declaring
his dream.
the necessity
of
giving voice
to
his dream,
this dream,
my dream,
our dream.

giving birth,
certainly,
to this:
life.

the one
we are
bit
by
hopeful
and
precious
bit
waking to
and
co-creating
and
living.

what dream are you declaring and sharing?
what dream are you waking to? co-creating? living?

"Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it."
-Martin Luther King, Jr.

*
i wish us the vision to see the cracks forming a perfect whole.
i wish us the courage to dream, wake, speak, create and live.
i wish us love's release, harmony and illumination.
