Mosaic

The beautiful
smooth
new
piece which
had been whole
unblemished
unused
and purely perfect
now lay
shattered
scattered slivers
on the hard
stone floor.
Wholeness
destroyed.

Sharp edges
gleam and glitter
scratches catch
an unseen light.

Insightful artists
brush aside the dust
pick up the pieces
and journey on
an uncharted
exploration.

Artist's hands
move and do
but their work is shaped
by the personality
and destiny
of each
unique
piece.


Splatters
are anchored
Fragments
unified
into a
new
different
kind
of whole.

From within the shards
of devastation
emerges
an
exquisite
work
of art
Truly unique
it posseses
its own beauty.

Beauty altered
but not diminished.
