Diamonds


Today there are diamonds in the sea

Dancing on the surface, they glisten

trance inducing

not to be captured, bought, or sold

The opposite of jewels I see on people’s necks, fingers, and ears

These are God’s diamonds, belonging to the Caribbean

and can not be explained or replicated

unable to fade or be destroyed

Nature’s formula for beauty is unmatched by man’s designs

and concocted symbols for love and commitment

Confused are we by material objects of desire

Take a look at the diamonds before your eyes

- free, ethereal, and forgiving

The everlasting sparkle
