Every poem is a gemstone Every word a jewel Set in silver, or in gold Our muses bring renewal. They convey. They have their say In amethyst or beryl. They are Bisbee turquoise Or luminous as pearls. Ruby smoulders, garnets dark Gems from 'round the world.
Some are facets emerald green, Some are for our ears. Some are fashioned for the throat Some aquamarine tears. Some black onyx pendants To play upon our fears.
Rings to place on fingers For friendship or engagement. Some are placed in Deep dark drawers As tokens of estrangement. But no matter how They're placed 'Tis meaningful arrangement.
Topaz golden moments Pirite is for fools But ALL poems are diamonds
All of them are JEWELS.

I'm truly sorry I haven't been around you folks. It seems I only write on here now, and scarcely read. I have spent a lot of time in Ministry, and have neglected my friends. My Ministry involves friends, and that should extend to my poet friends too! Please forgive me and accept my apology. I will really try to read more! God bless you all!
