Haiku Heights: Pain

something so well formed
should never shatter to shards–
glass that cuts my palms

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    The pain of losing something ‘so well formed’ may last longer than the pain of the cut! Your words are also ‘so well formed’ as always!

    Had me running for a tourniquet. Nicely crafted.

  9. Susan says:

    What shatters? Mirrors, ornaments, windows, times, illusions. The palm’s lines can change, and the future. Ouch, indeed.

    Just this morning I happened to break a beautiful glass bowl, which shattered into a million shards. So I know exactly what you mean. Beauty that cuts a jagged edge.
