The Glass Heart

"Fragments and crumbs of life, all the little pieces"
Once held in a glass heart
On a rocky road 
where I  - 
A free spirit 
With shoes cast aside
And danced in the rain
On a sunny day 
Barely feeling the pain
Of those shards
That reflected their
Brilliant light
A thousand fold
Through a broken heart
That once was whole
As the crumbs 
In the rain.

    Glass heart perfectly describes the human condition, that is so far as the here-and-now, the social whirl. I really like this one, Lainie. Love, daver

    Ahhh! A broken heart that is now on the mend. She sees the brillient light of a new life sparkling in the broken pieces that weere once the old life so she hardly feels the pain. Instead she dances in the cleansing rain as it washes away the pain. Brillient. Wonderful imagery. Filled with hope. Love it. God Bless, JB
