Sequel to cracked glass mug

Some details I should share

now look at the color of that tea

Imagine it spilling from the fatal wound in the beautiful glass

All over my counter.

I cried because the image made me sad. I was so looking forward

To drinking from that mug

My former beloved, deceased maybe six years from cancer

Loved cobalt glass

And it reminded me of her

Sitting in a gallery somewhere

Appreciating and explaining

With humor and with patience

How to see beauty

I never needed much help there

Triple libra me

And she was the most beautiful id ever seen.

I miss her

And I don’t want to lose her altogether

There was much more in that mug than just tea

    I canceled my socials so I cut down my political carbon footprint. It’s making me crazy. But I wanted the original poem and this, its sequel , to read sort of like an old fashioned Facebook status update.
