Repaired with gold


Howard Freeman via Flickr

Your love is like living gold
That cannot be contained in a single mould,
It pours out and over the sides,
Spilling into every culture;
Your love is kintsugi
Filling in the cracks and holes of society,
Making the dark spaces glitter,
Repairing the gaping holes with solid gold
And so making the planet whole again.

      Why thank you! And yes, a friend described the concept of kintsugi to me, and I was intrigued. It’s a beautiful idea. Thanks for reading my poem. :)
