Broken yet complete
Unyielding while resilient
Shattered in place
I’m in a glass case of emotion
Like raindrops on fallen petals
I cling and glisten in the sun
Every piece unique
More beautiful than the whole Tuesday “movie lines” i chose “I’m in a glass case of emotion.” -Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, 2004 –

    Beautiful work with the prompt Mary. I especially like ‘shattered in place’ with its echoes of the ‘shelter in place’ motto of our times.

    That particular cinema quote is perfect for your piece, Mary, which you delivered flawlessly well done.
