Gold Lamé

The healed seams in his aura
glistened like gold lamé
his broken heart mended
The story they told was old
of life with good wife
and other exterior props
The truth shone through
from a deeper bond –
his hard work and Spirit
In-filled joy is easy and bright…
*There is a practice among Japanese potters. When they fix a broken pot, they fill the crack with gold, honoring the experiences that caused the breakage, and  treating that breakage and subsequent repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise.
