Kintsukuroi

A Poem by Gaia Octavia

Fill my cracks with gold
so that I may shine
in all the broken places

Author's Note

Gaia Octavia
Kintsugi, also known as Kintsukuroi, is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with powdered gold, silver, or platinum.
As a philosophy, it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise. -Wikipedia

That's really beautiful. I've just learned a bit about kintsugi. With this piece, you've put to words the sentiment I see behind it.

Amazing! Short poem. Not many words... but you have a way to make them speak out (if that makes any sense... :/ ). Very good job! :)

You should watch season five, episode eight of the X Files.

Your poem made me feel happy, in a nostalgic kind of way.

Ah I remember that from someone talking to me about it. It's kinda like that meat in a persons life. Everything can be broken but if you shine through the broke pieces of life and hold onto the quality in you, (or anyone) you shine beautifully
