sunrise reflecting off pothole puddles
rain in waves
camera flashes across the sky

beauty does come in small spaces
pain makes even wide spaces feel tiny
and grace pushes back the walls,
invites hope-
anticipation, even-

fears spoken release some of their power
and quiet community
says, “You’re not alone.”

and this is grace:
an invitation to be beautiful
even before you recognize it



(Thanks to Sara Groves, again, for her well-penned words. This time they’re from “Add to the Beauty.”)
