A Broken Hallelujah

Love is not a Victory March
It’s a Cold and it’s a Broken Hallelujah

~ Leonard Cohen (21 Sept 1934 ~ 7 Nov 2016)

Kintsugi

Ring the Bells
That still can Ring

Forget
Your Perfect Offering

There is Crack
In Everything

That’s how
The Light gets In.

~ Leonard Cohen


‘Kintsugi’ is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold to create an imperfect piece of beauty, thus repairing the breakage as part of its history rather than something to disguise.

Almost Like the Blues

There is no God in Heaven
And there is no Hell below

So says the great Professor
Of all there is to Know

But I’ve had the Invitation
That a Sinner can’t refuse

And it’s almost like Salvation
It’s Almost like the Blues.

A Thousand Kisses Deep

I loved you when you opened
Like a lily to the heat

I’m just another snowman
Standing in the rain and sleet

rabbit

Who loved you with his frozen love
His second hand physique

With all he is, and all he was
A thousand kisses deep.

~ Leonard Cohen
