A Stained Glass Heart

May 24, 2008
By Nicole Schilling, Mercer Island, WA

A fragile glass heart
A simple
Look, word, act
And fault lines scar the sleek surface
Shattering the perfect glass
Sharp-edged shards remain
Dour in the dark

Time tempers the edges
Love can fuse the shards
Broken moments mend together
Held to light,
A multi-colored stained glass heart shines again
