A new beginning.

When a precious piece
of Japanese pottery was broken
the craftsman mended it,
filling the cracks with pure gold,
allowing filigree lines of beauty
to dance across the pot,
stroking the places
where the hurts were
and holding them firm.
A shining tracery of love
providing fresh beauty,
giving new strength
and allowing the pot
to live again.

A heart can be like that.
