Uncover the Sun

The Gems

 

Thank you

to all of the gems

in life

 

Those that innocently

sparkle joy

at any age

 

The jewels mishandled,

but somehow

still shining

 

The unpolished natural gems

that quietly

hold no pretensions

 

The big and the bold

set in gold or platinum,

delighting in attention

 

The warm ones

that glow softly

with kindness

 

The precious ones

here for a short time,

their luster reflected in memory

 

The deep-pressed diamonds

who discover their worth

only under duress

 

The cold beauties,

harsh-edged

and full of pain

 

The clear deep stones

unwavering

in any weather

 

Every cut and color in creation,

each facet reflecting

under the sun

Posted in authenticity, Caring.
