Tuesday Poem: an earlier version appeared in Poems of Awakening, edited by Betsy Small in 2010

from Small Benedictions

Bless the torn
part of each day,
the ruptures in us
that caused it
to tear where it did.

Bless the green
heart of each rupture,
the small green
kernel of hope
saved for replanting.
