    Poetry and broken things

    A crack, a break, a line of despair
    A mother mourns - no way to repair
    Creamy white ivory rimmed in red
    The coffee cup is now dead

    I may have cried (just a little) about my broken coffee cup that has brought me caffeinated happiness every morning for the last 2 years, but I do have to admire the little verse that was born from it's demise. My kids had fun changing around the patterns and working with the words, and now my daughter is sketching out a graphic version. So, I guess, pain and suffering can bring about joy?

    BUT if anyone has a MP cup that they would like to part with...
    Peace and all good,

      So sorry

      My first one never made it past the airport driveway.

      My second one didn’t make it past one of my children unloading the dishwasher.

      Now I have several because of a conference I did a year ago...if you PM your address, I can mail it to you. But it is maroon...not cream.

      Unless MP has some blue ones leftover from this year?
