Two Post Easter Poems

Redemption

Taking broken pieces of pottery

Once beautiful in their wholeness

Now scattered in the ground

Found and gathered

Painstakingly pieced together

Into a magnificent mosaic

The Connection

Love is the strong bond that grows and tightens

Our connections with one another

It is tested frequently

And when the result is acceptance

And the choice is to continue to love

The bond becomes ever stronger

Love gives us the desire to know the beloved

To see the one loved in a true and forgiving light

This knowledge means I know to some degree

The unhealed pain in the heart

That drives the madness

We all have at times

Yet, choose again to love
