A wound is a door

09 Feb

“A wound is a door through which the light comes in”

                                -Rumi

 

A wound is a door
The way through which
The light comes in.

See it not as a sore
Nor seamlessly stitch
The gash too thin.

Nor choke the cells
With raging regret
Or toxic bitterness.

Let each sinew smell
Of what is thought and felt
With wholesome awareness.

If you need a pill
For the pain to cease
And a way to cope

Let each crevice fill
With the fragrant breeze
From the blooms of hope
