The Loveliest Jar

A lovely jar
thrown in clay
by the Maker
See it cracked
chipped, smashed upon the ground
Shattered to dust and shards

Despair lingers until
the Maker comes
sweeps up each shard
Each grain of clay dust
He restores the jar
to greater beauty
My Quadrille for dVerse Poets Pub. Required word is jar.

    LOVE this, Linda. I have read there is a culture that adds liquid gold to put pottery (jars, etc.) back together…in order to add even greater beauty to broken. As I am a testament to second chances, I truly believe God uses the broken, beautifully.
