"Two Hearts", oil on canvas, by Cathleen Rehfeld





One day her heart was broken

into shards of silver and gold.

It shattered

and the pieces were spread

across the sidewalk.

She shook with the misery of it,

but soon she noticed that people

loved those fragments of her heart.

A man of sorrows saw a piece

and placed it in his pocket.

A woman made a nest in her hands

for some small flakes,

and her students took some home

to help them live.

Even she herself leaned down

and let a speck of her heart

amaze her.
