A Word Plaque: Believe and the Possibility of Mending

I am honored when our friend Joan entrusts us with a word that is meaningful to her.  Stratoz starts with the word as a whole, and decides where to put the cut-lines, and then the word slowly comes back together again, back buttering each piece with glue.  Over at Calm Things, Shawna Lemay posted a photo of a shattered teacup and poems by Dorianne Laux and Mary Oliver and ended with her own words:

{Instructions to myself}:   See with your hand outstretched. See the heart of your friend, a blue cup, a chinese dragon teacup. See, reaching out. See what may be on the brink. Hold it in your cupped hands.

This friend lost her husband and had her heart broken, and holds her outstretched to embrace “believe.”

Commission the word that speaks to you.
