devastation and wings

The way of love is not
a subtle argument.

The door there
is devastation.

Birds make great sky-circles
of their freedom.
How do they learn it?

They fall, and falling,
they’re given wings.
― Rumi

At first there is nothing to do but hold your own children tighter and weep. And rage. Many people are worried about the world ending on December 21st, but for those Connecticut children, the world ended today.
