3d-doubloons

(This poem is in my book, available at Amazon.)

A merchant, wise, spreads out his wares
   So passing buyers see;
Attracted to the beauty, they
   Inspect admiringly.

The one who’s selling precious stones
   Found deep inside a mine,
Will lay their sparkles up against
   A background, so their shine

And color contrast with the cloth
   That he on table lays,
Thus framing them and drawing forth
     The greatest gushing praise.

And so it is with those rare jew’ls
   On which mankind has gazed
Through all the ages we’ve sojourned –
   And still we are amazed.

The poets pen; the songsters sing;
   The lovers’ hearts are warmed;
The dreamer ponders mysteries,
   And all are daily charmed.

Those shining gems against the black,
   God placed precisely, right.
Like diamonds, He spread stars against
   The velvet of the night.

Pigeon Play

Game over:
I’m number one.  You’re
Number two.

Beginners,
But they’re naturals.
Relax, Mom.

In the web,
A morning treasure –
Dew diamonds.
