NaPoWriMo #2: opposition in all things

This started out as a tanka...

Don't fear pain; it is
the bones of joy--not only
a hard frame giving
shape, but marrow running soft
through the core of happiness.

...and then morphed to haiku as the details solidified.


Bittersweet


Pain is the pulse of
quiet marrow giving shape
to the bones of joy.
