Gems

Without apology the shiny jewels were cast

From new found laughter

They spilled from the heart

Which had been silenced so long

Embedding themselves in the soil

Like pennies from a pocket

Searched for in vane

By the keeper of deep thoughts

 

Some caught the light

And reflected that which they absorbed 

 

Some were sucked to the earth

And held in a dayless vacuum

 

Some were picked up

And cherished for their worth

 

And some of those were pawned

To be kept as a trophy close

 

But one shone freely

Beautiful every hour

 

Sitting in a museum

Adored by passers by

 

Who laugh in shocking admiration

And jewels spill all over

To Embed the earth with glory

And cast a fierce light hence
