Kintsugi and Everyone’s a Moon by Tsuki San

Kintsugi

Amalgamation

transcends original

the broken cups

and the broken bowls

put together with tender love

and a golden joint

that breathes life

once broken

now anew

 

What of

things too broken

to be pieced back

part by part

do we now find the beauty

in the broken as aesthetic

 

Perhaps

we have to declare the death

of things too broken

and respectfully keep them

in a chest deep inside

safely, gently

never to see them again

 

Everyone’s a Moon

Everyone’s a moon,

each in a different phase

but all with a dark side

that we can’t see
