Poetry/Short Stories

Shattered glass gathered.


She is shattered glass gathered!

An abandoned bouquet watered.

A broken heart healed

An open wound stitched

A crushed soul lifted

A cold body warmed

A smile resurrected

A lonely hand held





By your compassion


Grace and..


One by one

A piece at a time

Each gathered back by you!

  1. The 1st sentence feels like the abrupt explosion of breaking glass, with each line supporting the gathering and mending. This is a wonderful poem full of poignant imagery.

  2. I have a magnet on my refrigerator that says “God will heal a broken heart if you give Him all the pieces.” I love the way you expressed similar thoughts.

    1. Thank-you Elizabeth. Yes God will heal. I believe that to be absolutely true. No pieces are too shattered for Him to gather. In life, there are so many people that will love us; gathering pieces through their acts of love, kindness and compassion. Even amidst evil or bad, there are so many beautiful people that will give us their hand to hold. Thank-you so much for your wisdom Elizabeth. I am so honored to get to interact with you on here. It’s always a delight reading what you have to say. Thank-you again and again.🌹

    1. I am deeply humbled by your kind words. I absolutely love writing and it even better when kind people see beauty in my pieces. Thank-you again and again 🌻

  3. I love the way poetry can awaken emotions thought to be in slumber as this poem has for me. Another treasure added to my collection of food for the soul.
