“Love will find a way through paths where wolves fear to prey.” Lord Byron.





The Dream Jewel

Where is the jewel I dreamt
in this sea of ordinary stones,
where shines the emerald, the 
ruby, on this dusty plain,
I searched everywhere and I
looked long and hard down
lanes and valleys, hoping for 
some seeker's sign to point me
on my way, until that day, a
perfect day, a glint shone 
through the melancholic dust,
the most precious jewel I'd 
ever seen, she held me in 
her beauty, a beauty deeper 
than the eye perceived.

  3. That is just stunning Paul highlighting the gift of that we most need and sesire is always there reflecing back at us. All of your words were amazing but I loved this one in particular:
    “a glint shone
    through the melancholic dust,
    the most precious jewel I’d
    ever seen, she held me in
    her beauty, a beauty deeper
    than the eye perceived”.
