Shards

We were a family once
of a common voice, singing
in strains of harmony
of the dreams we shared,
looking in the mirror as one,
a unit, a single entity . . .
but as in Babylon of old
the mirror cracked
into a multitude of shards,
a prism of reflections,
each with its own viewpoint,
an eschewing of the old form
into divergent languages,
discordant rhythms singing songs
in strident voices,
none hearing the cadence, the melody
the others were using,
the shards singing with deaf ears,
alone, yet still holding onto
the frame which once held the unit,
not knowing how to separate
a cacophony of noise
echoing into the vast waste
of nothingness . . .
