Poet Lady Katz: new forum reply to Mosaic

New reply from Susan Katz

<p>Thank you so much for submitting this extremely well written poem.  I am impressed with the way you made "mosaic" the image that carried your thoughts and feelings, throughout the poem, and became the final "exclamation point" at the end of the poem.  You have a lovely rhythm and, though I might have of hoped for a little less emphasis on rhyme," a finely crafted poem.  I will be considering it for Featured Poem of the Month for December.  Your friend in poetry, Susan</p>

<p>You might think this,</p>
<p>As it's often spoken;</p>
<p>That whatever breaks,</p>
<p>Is forever broken.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>But let me say that,</p>
<p>It's just partly true;</p>
<p>Picking up the pieces,</p>
<p>Is totally up to you.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>What you don't see is,</p>
<p>That it had been in fact;</p>
<p>So utterly meaningless,</p>
<p>When it was intact.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The cracks on it now,</p>
<p>Might seem chaotic;</p>
<p>But it's journey so far,</p>
<p>Holds a beauty poetic.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Every crack an adornment,</p>
<p>A wound healed with care;</p>
<p>And every blemish again,</p>
<p>An experience to share.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>It's very easy to obsess,</p>
<p>Over what you lose;</p>
<p>But to reckon what you got,</p>
<p>Should you ever choose.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Surely one day you'll find,</p>
<p>Gone is it's ennui prosaic;</p>
<p>And now the broken pieces,</p>
<p>Make a beautiful mosaic.</p>
