I Will Not Carve You In Stone

I will not carve you in stone

I trace the shape of you

with my eyes

with my hands

with my lips and tongue

I trace the shape of you

in my mind

in my heart

in my very being I let you sit

I trace the shape of you but

will not carve you in stone

The shape of you moves

the shape of you changes so

I will not carve you in stone

God’s Diamonds

Gods Diamonds 7d9eebc0cd7e02435bcf750956ebccba

God left diamonds

in my garden today

Draped elegantly over tall

wild grasses

clinging in teardrop perfection

from the arch of an unfurling koru

God left diamonds

in my garden today

The sun pushing a rainbow

paradigm through this

sparkling rare

jewel of Nature

God left diamonds

in my garden today

Worn with a breathtaking beauty

a spider’s web is adorned

Dripping in dew-drop diamonds

A lavish gold in sunlight

Every color of

every gem in any brilliant spectrum

lies here at my feet

in the garden

the beauty around me

The Earth

She is my wealth –

God left diamonds in my garden…
