June 26. Twenty-six Words.



 
Pain 
is a glass angel
directing the soul,
a glint of fire,
when the heel comes down...

small tinks scattered on the pavement…

so you stop.

Stopping -- the price of admission. Quite a statement in our world.

And the glass angel image, brilliant.

I think that angels do warn you in anyway that can stop you. The many stories of 9/11 told of how obstacles were put in so many people's way that morning - keeping them from the planes, getting them out of planned meetings, having cars break down. In my own life, I wonder often about when I inadvertently forget something, or shoelaces break - is that stopping some catastrophe; are my angels looking out for me.

That's what it says to me so cleverly and concisely. Well done!
