Kaleidoscope

The crystal shards left lying
Scattered on the floor
Reflect a kaleidoscope of colors
More beautiful than before.

Only when itís broken
Do the lights dance across the glass
The futureís shining, sparkling
Let go of the past.

Weep not for the crystal
Although broken, it has grown
From a symbol of holding it together
To someone shining on her own.

Not broken, but transformed.  Eloquent, Tara.  

--Kess


 Full fathom five thy father lies,
Of his bones are coral made,
Those are pearls that were his eyes;
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange...


--William Shakespeare, from The Tempest

yes very eloquent...am glad you posted this, it is beautiful...thank you again  

that you could look
at the pieces of me
that tumble out
scattered bits,
posted through need
and see the me,
the whole, happy me,
that I
want to be...
now that my friend
is amazing to me...
thank you so much
for your kindness
and for painting your
talent on the
crystal that is me
