Poem #21: Diamonds in the Sun


Diamonds in the Sun

The air was cold.
The breeze blew gently
From the sea beyond
The hills of hazy blue.

It had rained not
Long before, and tiny
Drops of water lingered
Still on shiny leaves.

The sun soon rose,
Catching each little drop
In its tender rays
Of heavenly gold.

The drops began
To sparkle in the
Light like so many
Diamonds on the trees.

But soon the warm
Caress of gold had
Swallowed up the beauty
It had created.
