Broken

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Broken”.

It is in the nature of everything

To be broken repeatedly in pieces fine

For every breakage is destined to bring

The pieces together in a novel design

With a massive breakage the universe began

A giant mass of matter broke with the big bang

And gave birth to the sun, the earth, and man;

Life as we know it, the whole shebang!
