Life begins

Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you.


It begins in deadly hearts of stars, in elements consumed, transfigured in killing, birthing heat.

It begins deep within, in the murderous seething of earth's innards.

It begins with rock defeated, riven, worn, stone creased and cracked and crushed a million times, battered to sand and sent on its silted way.

It begins in womb-dark murk and musk of soil, in death and rot and rank decay, in spilled seeds split and broken down, in loss, collapse and festering, by blessed unseen bugs and germs digesting darkness into light.

In awful places this miracle, this life begins. Brokenness becomes something. In darkness, deaths and desolations is the birth of what shall be.
