Jagged Edges


At Poets United, the Vice-Versa prompt words are: 
jagged/smooth and lack/abundance. Good words.


Given time,
life
smoothes out
the jagged edges
of our hearts.

With experience,
every lack
we once
perceived
turns to
abundance.

  12. That is so true. We have a choice don't we?... either to see the glass as half empty or, half full.
    Lovely Sherry!
