She stands motionless, not uttering a sound, as the

Crystal vase slips from her hands and crashes to the floor,

Sending tiny shards of multicolored glass in every direction.


Carefully, she gathers the pieces, taking care to leave

Nothing behind - for if she does, someone may become injured -

Causing them to suffer - albeit unintentional.


Although reasonably confident she has done her best,

She studies the area once more - now smiling faintly -

Reflecting on the multicolored shards of her life.

Dawn - Thoughtful and compassionate poem. The imagery makes solid the
psychological and spiritual truth of coming to terms with the "multicolored shards" of our lives, not only for our benefit but also for the benefit of others. Wise poem. - David

Hopefully as we worry about others being hurt we care the same for ourselves. Those tiny shards are very sharp and can easily damage our heart as well. Thank you for sharing Dawn.

Newfie hugs, Rose

A beautiful write, Dawn. "Smiling faintly" implies that those multicolored shards reflect joy.
