Constellations are my diamonds;
nuggets of time, precious commodities.
Oh, to find a pearl in the vastness of oceans-
tender touches upon ivory petals;
smoky quartz flutters surrender
as tides play lullabies to woo lovers to sleep.
Citrine rays of sunrise flirt with senses;
bouquet of wildflowers
laid gently where he slept
like love letters carved in sand.
