KIDSBOOKS | GOLDEN REPAIR

Golden Repair or Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery by mending the areas of breakage with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver or platinum.

There was once a china mug
He was some twelve years old
He’d done his job dutifully
Holding drinks both hot and cold

Over the years the china mug
Had seen his share of strain
His rim was chipped in two places
He had permanent tea stains

But he was quite a trooper
He never ceased to smile
Even when the bright new mugs
Would tease him all the while.

One day the lady of the house
Was wiping down the sink
Her hand brushed by the china mug
And down he went crashing!

He lay in six odd pieces
Across the kitchen floor
The lady scooped them all up
And put them in a drawer

Ten days later the other mugs
Saw a creature most divine!
A pretty china mug laced
With delicate golden lines.

“It’s me the old china mug”
He said smiling at their stares
I’ve just been mended gently
with love and Golden Repair.

Amd so it is with old things
Friendships, mugs and toys
With Love and care, gentle repair
They bring constant joy.

A wandering “desi” and a corporate chicken who’s flown the proverbial coop is what I currently am. Have chosen the sultry island of Sri Lanka for my wandering/ experiential activities. Writing something- anything really, has been on the bucket list for a great old while. Finally putting some pixel energy behind the cause! This blog is about a wide gamut of stories, opinions, ideas, characters, storms in teacups, extraterrestrials, food for the soul (and some not so much), space (of the cosmic and personal varieties), cutting edge psychoanalytic analyses, and sunsets (Dysania-struck so probably no sunrises!) – all presented to you from a wide array of coffee shops across my modest globe-trotting sojourns. Here’s to enjoying the ride together! https://www.facebook.com/Mahvash.Moht/
