Cracked Lamp

While cleaning, I knocked over
a favorite lamp, cracking it
in several places. Upset at first,
I finally calmed enough to see the
beautiful patterns of light that
filtered through the cracks,
filling the room with swirls of gold.
I realized then how often life seems
to break us until we see that through
the cracks shines our light from within.
