other faces — wounds and gifts

There is a gifting and a wounding in the exchange, the face-to-face. Singular treasure, jagged in its edges. Why does love hurt? 

Bare arms exposed in grace embrace, now scarred. 

Still, there is a gifting...

Gift continuing to be given

Kind intent behind

The tapestry of this jarring movement 

Paradox of choosing received grace. 

Life discernment overrides the judging.

Healing of love’s wounds and fresh kindness. 

New treasure given in a face, which 

Gives, uncovering itself,

An exposure, gift from private freedom,

Loosing our fettered fear, freeing

Bringing freshness from 

The wild wonder world

Outside of us...
