Lisa Mae from the Bhaktishop was nice enough to send me the poem that she recited at the end of yoga class yesterday.

Some say you’re lucky
if nothing shatters it,
But then you wouldn’t
Understand poems or songs,

You’d never know
Beauty comes from loss.
It’s deep inside every person;
A tear tinier
Than a pearl or thorn.
It’s one of the places
Where the beloved is born.
What a business:
Praising the beloved.
What a business:
Loving the world.
-For Liza

From page 121 of Concerning The Book That Is The Body of The Beloved by Gregory Orr.
