things That Break

A broken vase
is mendable
with a bit of glue.

Silver solder
repairs a rip in metal.

New parts often
keep the car running.

A doctor plasters
a broken bone.

New shingles replace
a worn-out roof.

Road crews pour asphalt
into dangerous pot holes.

Planks of wood
restore barn doors.

No substance on earth
can mend a broken heart.

Time is the only cure;
 healing is slower than molasses.

Sometimes, grief-gouged wounds
leave shadows
reaching into eternity.
