I went to the spa on Saturday…This is a poem I wrote in September regarding a visit to that same place.
A necklace in the spa’s display case
Mesmerized me with a strong pull.
I couldn’t look away
and was lost in its complexity.
The shape of the jewel, square,
did not remind me of your eyes,
but the depth and clarity of the stone
Your eyes remind me of
a clear, rushing river
not polluted and bubbling with life and joy.
So pure and lovely to look into.
They say that eyes are the windows to the soul
and I have every reason to believe this is true.
Your eyes contain facets just like regular jewels do,
deep, warm and abiding.
Looking into your eyes makes me feel safe;
you have seen a lot of pain and wretchedness in your time
but still your love remains, and your beauty is inside and out.
It shines forth because you, after all, are a jewel.
