A Broken Bone

A broken bone unlocks energy   Near drowning is near waking       Deep cuts pierce the veil                   Of our skin          And we find that inside and       Outside co-exist          Until the doctor sews us up     And leaves us struggling to get out       Again

The beetle tried to signal me

Like a little man guiding

A big airplane

The bird tried to explain it

Repeating her all-important


Over and over

Even if I still don’t get it

The fish didn’t really ask me to

Let it go—a brookie sparkling in dappled


But what else could I do, it being

so small, and patient

but especially so beautiful

-Namaste, Bruce

    BTW-This is the best poem that I have read in quite a while…not too personal, I think we all can relate to it but it not cliche either. Hard to do.
