Ah! happy those whose hearts can breakand peace of pardon win!How else may man make straight his planAnd cleanse his soul from Sin?How else but through a broken heartMay Lord Christ enter in?-- Oscar Wilde
beautiful! It reminds me of the Leonard Cohen song...parts of which are below...Anthem(From the album "THE FUTURE")The birds they sangat the break of dayStart againI heard them sayDon't dwell on whathas passed awayor what is yet to be....You can add up the partsbut you won't have the sumYou can strike up the march,there is no drumEvery heart, every heartto love will comebut like a refugee....Ring the bells that still can ringForget your perfect offeringThere is a crack, a crack in everythingThat's how the light gets in.That's how the light gets in.That's how the light gets in.
Ooh...methinks I've found my Friday poetry blogging, thanks to you, Mata H!;-)An ironic twist to this picture: I have a friend whose husband had open-heart surgery last night -- he'd gone to the doctor for tests, and evidently the doctors discovered such a blockage that they admitted him immediately. We had prayers for them at church last night, and when I got home both the idea for this post, and the idea for the graphic, just came together in a sadly serendipitous way.
I love the Wilde, the picture and the Cohen. Thanks to both of you.
