The glass is shattered and broken
colors refracted in the morning sun
a riot of light and shading become
a perfect memorial stained glass window.
These seemingly leftovers and castoff
become the basis for a new recipe
breakfast that serves a hungry family
a feast for those with the very least.
We each alone are these broken pieces
the cast offs of the great miraculous banquet
we are part of the great impossibilities of God
we are gathered up and never lost.
The great artist examines each lone piece
taking time to see each prism of light and color
letting our best dance with other broken ones
we become permanent great works of art.
