Beauty In Brokenness

by Mark Weinrich

We don’t see beauty
in brokenness. 
In these disposable days 
what seems unfixable 
is reason to
emotionally shop. 
The fractured, whether
people or things are
castoffs in the search
of something new.

Perhaps the skill and
patience for repair
have skipped a generation
or never been witnessed.
We can’t envision shards
of glass becoming 
a masterpiece, until we’re
willing to surrender. 

Mark Weinrich lives a creative life as a writer, photographer, musician, and artist—all wrapped together in an outdoorsman. He is a retired pastor and nine-year cancer survivor.
