There are folks who appear in life from out of nowhere unexpected. I came upon one the other day while shopping for a new computer. The last thing I expected was to be taught life lessons from an angel disguised as a computer salesman, but I'm grateful my ears were open enough to hear him. This one's for you Michael S. Thank you.
"How Light Shines Through Cracks"
My life is being devoured,
yet I remain whole.
I will not feed myself on scraps;
I am an invited guest to the banquet -
to the feast.
I who come
with fruits and flowers
songs and poems
I who come to the banquet
bringing you gifts,
I beg you --
Do not linger in the suffering.
Do not be reduced to scraps.
