Broken Vases

by Mortal Utopia   Jul 6, 2018

You know, you really do give me strength
in your fractured fragility -
so close to tears and so close to courage.

How lucky am I to have you beside me
as the rain wept by and through us
like souls - perhaps to unbreak us.

How lucky am I not to be alone
when the wind enclosed us,
hushed and shy - perhaps to embrace us.

Here we are:
two broken, thrown away vases
lying on the ground

holding, carefully, yesterday's raindrops.
