The art of repairing with gold

are we still beautiful
           once broken
     spirit’s vessel
                    fragility confirmed?

 fracture lines
              map tectonics
       of damage 
a jigsaw of breaking
                       laid bare

   but rivulets
              of healing
                   gleam through shards
   a geography
                  of mending

                   as breath
        that uneven melody
 haunted by broken notes
              splinters, striving
                            toward song
