moonstone


in any image
there is infinite possibility
of thought or word
a chaos producing a quarry of gems
apatite to zircon
peridot to tanzanite

the
 universe slides
in-out of a halogram
of visions
who is the mother of this?
will i find her
in
moonstone?
will she name - call me
fire-opal?

  2. Delicate and bright little images in this one, barbara. I love the names of gems, they are poetry in themselves, and you have done nothing but enhance their beauty here in using them as your alphabet. (Tourmaline is the name I would like to be called, if that mother happened by.)

  15. Excellent... "...who is the mother of this?" is almost redundant if we see ourselves in the creation of change and chaos. Thought provoking!
