Learn the art of broken pieces,
To mend broken cups, plates and pots,
Line it with lacquer mixed with gold.
Recognizing the history,
Repair but don’t disguise.
Embrace the damage,
For they are the fingerprints of its life.
Ceramic minds offer no insights,
It needs an iron hammer or just let it fall,
Now remove whatever is wrong.
The world will never forget your flaws,
Use them as armor,
And they can’t hurt you.
