Michael Leunig & Heartbreak

Click on the title to visit the – lovely – Michael Leunig Appreciation page on Facebook for this poem about how we might meet ourselves in a healing way, when our hearts are ‘cut or cracked or broken’.

Thank you, Sarah Koschak, for bringing this to our attention. It feels of value, both in terms of:-

  • the healing potential where we can risk/allow ourselves space (within and without) to feel what we feel, rather than pushing down our feelings or distracting ourselves from them, and
  • the support available – e.g. from the natural world – to help us do this.

Here’s a blog post on the same theme: Pointers for a Broken Heart: How to Heal the Emptiness Within by Gabrielle Gawne-Kelnar:-
