Golden Healing

Faith Unlocked

Kintsugi

Crumbled and shattered
Useless and scattered
Passed into Your care
Restored by Your craft

Brokenness becomes beautiful
Gathered now, still dutiful
Gilded cracks renewing
Purposeful once again

Kintsugi (金継ぎ) (Japanese: golden joinery) or Kintsukuroi (金繕い) (Japanese: golden repair) is the Japanese art of fixing broken pottery with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum, a method similar to the maki-e technique. As a philosophy it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise.
