feeling smooth yet cracked

around the table
shining in all directions

empty in the sun

in the driveway
finding life amid the rocks

Thanks for this reminder. Not only to slow down and soak in some beauty, but that even if I feel cracked, I can still be smooth.

I love the way you captured the urn - it's textured glaze and the lines of the blind reflected too!

The window reflection in the lovely green and cracks of the vase is my fave. Your words, always advise I need to hear.
