The how of love

Week 20, Day 5b

Philippians 2. 1-13

For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake will find it. Matthew 16:25

Set Love free

and she will lose

this time

and the next time

and the time after that.

Losing is the how of love.

Set Love free

and she will reach

with emptied hands

deep into the poverty

of caring

to share her bounty,

which is to save

your life.

She will take it from you

shake it and shape it

giving it back birthed


saved and well.

Save your life?

Lose it, says Love

You can only hold what flows

through your fingers.

Live lost.

Learn the victory of defeat,

the gain of losing,

of being, not grasping

what must be let go

of emptying into the form

of serving.
