Today is littered with jewels.
Opals wink from deep within
forget-me-nots. Wrens clutch
rubies in their tawny feet.

I woke with tenderness
upon me like a ray of light
and breathed its irridescence
as a sweet dream recalled.

I gather pearls and sapphires
in my pockets, heartbeats
in a paper sack. All day long
I see the diamond stars that wait

for sunset as they ride the lake's
broad back. My hands hold
faceted turquoise skies
and garnet memories set in gold.
