“Broken promises torment the imagination
through a shattered dream,
splintered like broken glass
into countless reflections of angst.
distorting the sense of wholeness
clinging to burdened thoughts,
clinging to faults,
clinging to blame,
to bitter acrimony from yesterday into today,
unhelpful, unwanted and undeserved.
exposing collapsed centres of inner movement
unexamined defences to this impersonal harassment
until the willingness comes to let things be
and beginner’s mind taken to heart.
in our shattered dream,
we see the way to a new beginning
