Beautiful words: A poem by Mark Nepo

I’ve just come across this poem, and I think it’s such a beautiful piece of writing to reflect on in these in-between days, that I had to share it.

“My soul tells me, we were
all broken from the same nameless
heart, and every living thing
wakes with a piece of that original
heart aching its way into blossom.
This is why we know each other
below our strangeness, why when
we fall, we lift each other, or when
in pain, we hold each other, why
when sudden with joy, we dance
together. Life is the many pieces
of that great heart loving itself
back together.”

~ Mark Nepo
