After my first gem show

Peacock copper

unbelievably blue green

providing insight

into the sea’s green ether

the sky’s earliest blue

each hue of the bird’s

feathery eye

flecked with yellow and rust

dusts of the beginning

adheres to you, glued.


Gemstone formed of

metals and rock,

you, to me, prove God

with your beauty, prove

me, discourse on the

motion of the planets


that move in blue green

sparkles, like bursts of turquoise

bubbles on the foam of the first bright sea.
