Phalaenopsis 'Hawaian Darling'

The Bright Core of Failure

Sometimes you enter the heart.
Sometimes you are born from the soul.
Sometimes you weep a song of separation.
It is all the same glory.

You live in beautiful forms,
and you are the energy that breaks form.
All light, neither this nor that.

Human beings go places on foot.
Angels, with wings.

Even if they find nothing but ruins
and failure, you are the bright core of that.

I saw this Rumi posted by Deb at LM. It just touches me so deep. I don't have that with all the Rumi's but this one is so equisite. So is the picture.Very very nice Lars.

Barks just gets right to it. This one also stirred up that magic in my minds eye. Thanks for stopping by.
