New Dimensions - Beauty of a Woman Blogfest

I posted this piece yesterday before I knew about the BEAUTY OF A WOMAN BLOGFEST



I hope this piece of work does justice. Please check out August's blog and participate! I don't know how to do the logo so it has a link, but just click on her blog link above for details.

Here's my post from yesterday:

NEW DIMENSIONS

You shattered me into a million pieces,
But lovingly put me back together.
I’m whole again,
And yet I’m so very different.
Light doesn’t entirely reflect off of me anymore.
It shines through the cracks and the crevices
Where I used to be solid.
I now have highlights.
I like it this way.
How else could I mirror the depths
Of your new dimensions?

I thought a follow up to my Perfect Unison piece from November would be nice. It's quite extraordinary to finally feel accepted by my own reflection.

  8. Ain't that the truth? Finding someone able to help you see that earth-bound is just part of the equation, is pretty special. Lovely poem.
