A Little Leunig

Today, I just wanted to share a couple of things from Michael Leunig, with you.....


When the heart
Is cut or cracked or broken
Do not clutch it
Let the wound lie open

Let the wind
From the good old sea blow in
To bathe the wound with salt
And let it sting

Let a stray dog lick it
Let a bird lean in the hole and sing
A simple song like a tiny bell
And let it ring


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~




Let it go. Let it out.
Let it all unravel.
Let it free and it can be
A path on which to travel.

Thank you for that, the first one especially. I love Leunig - I just hadn't realized he'd made it to Hong Kong!
