The Broken Gourd

by Wendell Berry


The opening out and out,

body yielding body:

the breaking

through which the new

comes, perching

above its shadow

on the piling up

darkened broken old

husks of itself:

bud opening to flower

opening to fruit opening

to the sweet marrow

of the weed-


from what was, from

what could have been.

What is left

is what is.
