Pearl Awakening


There is a pearl buried
deep between two wings
waiting to adorn her porcelain skin
waiting for the flush to begin
to rise and flow
ignite heart and eyes

she wears the new moon light as gems
enhancing flawless luster
flowing like a stream
pure radiance

all the stars gather to take her in
new moon light shines a glimpse
like endless diamonds sprinkled across the sky
stars fill the night

pearl of her heart takes flight
she is born to dance
life's romance

  58. "endless diamonds sprinkled across the sky"

    I would never be able to think of that! The only poetry I know how to write are silly rhymes.

    Ah! yes, I am not a professional painter or illustrator. I was a trauma and emergency nurse before I decided to write patient saftey rule modules and programs. I just do art to escape from housework! Hahaha!
