A Cobbled Heart

Quadrille #58 – Cobble us a Poem

~
A Cobbled Heart

 

Her tender heart was
Coming apart at the seams
(it seems)
He found some threads
Of truth to use
To mend the open places
Where trust was seeping out
And stitch by stitch he
Cobbled together the pieces
Until her heart was whole again

A Mended World

2017 November PAD Chapbook Challenge: Day 16
Write a poem to the world

~~

A Mended World

you wear peace like
a gauzy veil of
muted colors

beautiful

fragile
and we create tiny
pinpricks of anger
and discord that threaten
to rend it to pieces
yet somehow

you manage to mend each hole
each troubled soul
weaving new colors
into the fabric of peace
