Love itself

January 15th, 2010

Can’t think of anything worth leaving but this.

The light came through the window,
Straight from the sun above,
And so inside my little room
There plunged the rays of Love.

In streams of light I clearly saw
The dust you seldom see,
Out of which the Nameless makes
A Name for one like me.

I’ll try to say a little more:
Love went on and on
Until it reached an open door –
Then Love Itself
Love Itself was gone.


  1. Karen, I feel I have met a soul mate! Thank you for your wonderful work and inspiring posts. I read every word and my heart sighs, YES! Leonard is one of my favorites and I live by his wonderful words," there is a crack in everything, that's how the light gets in." That's how I keep going, learning to love the cracks. Namaste, Penny
