Poem #10

This poem came from a tweet yesterday by Carol Varsalona. Carol said, "Time to reflect on how past affects present..."

"Past Affects Present"
people tell me
my boys' brokenness
will one day
be a source of strength
sea glass rubbed smooth
right now
i only see sharp edges

(c) Carol Wilcox, 2015

or maybe a  real haiku (which is what we are supposed to be writing)

"Past affects present"
my boys' brokenness
one day a source of great strength
now only sharp edges

(C) Carol Wilcox, 2015

When I was looking for the picture, I remembered that I had written about this once before, a couple of years ago. That one is here.
