Crystal Heart Unbroken
By Cheryl D. Harrison
How many times the heart can break
Is not beknown to man;
But woman celebrates her fate
To bend and break again.
The crystal vase antique, her heart,
Tumbled, dropped, caressed;
A spider web tenacious glass,
Weathered, banal life professed.
Fingers find the tiny niches,
Eyes not sharp enough to guess,
The etch betrays the glistening whole
Of life that she calls blessed.
Not a drop of water does it spill;
Still faithful, loyal, true --
Through one small mishap seems to be
One more it won’t live through.
You gaze in silent wonder at
The strength as yet displayed;
The glow it still returns to you
As ages wear away.
