There is Beauty in the Fallen

748 - Copy

The young and vibrant are praised just because–

all that color and life, a grace.

But even in the light grip of the wounded and aged–the letting go–

there is a glory.

There is beauty in the fallen and glory in the shadows.

Loss is not loss, just change; and

all is grace.

    This post took my breath away. Just gorgeous. A tree had let go of her flowers and there were purple petals lying on the pavement. I wondered what the poem was. You nailed it. 🙂 It is ALL grace. Wondering what grief really is lately. Is it something we need to work through or is it just liquid grace allowing us to move foward as better more compassisonate people. -Jennifer
