    I liked the optimism in the first couple lines. Saying that life throws you curve balls not to bring you down, but to test your faith and strength. To quote a country song I like "The good lord gave us mountains so we could learn how to climb" - Lonestar. I too try to expand my poetry by writing in a wide range of topics. It keeps those creative juices flowing!

    Gail, sharp are the pieces for sure, a profound and deep poem, I relate to it very much, I try to keep the window closed, locked, padlocked but it opens anyways, well done, constance

    Your fine poem, "Broken Glass" is wonderfully introspective and poignant, Gail, and your closing verse is brilliant and profound. Carl.

    Gail, I love the disclaimer at the end. Yes, sometimes we try to read too much into the poet's work when at times it is simply an attempt at capturing a certain mood or sentiment. Thanks for sharing this poem about the broken windows of our souls. Very deep. Hugs!

    Love the example you give here of the broken window in our souls, we are such delicate beings on the inside, we can shatter so easily, thanks for sharing this sensitive poem, sending my love and have a good night my dear one xxx

    Yes indeed, broken windows do not reflect images of life. I like that concept. And it is the shattered glass that creates the scars. Very profound write. Nothing personal taken - diversity is a good way to grow as a writer - no need to apologize for whatever streams from your poetic conscience. Nice write Gail.
