The Find

Originally written 9/28/06

I was walking along the shorelines
Searching through Poseidon’s rejects,
When I chanced on a plain, pale stone.
How wondrous, this find by the sea.

Near invisible against the sand–
What was that glimmer of color?
That killer of cats conquered me.
How wondrous, this find by the sea.

I said plain? I stand corrected.
Color, unrivaled by rainbows,
Played across the opal’s surface.
How wondrous, this find by the sea.

I considered its origins–
From the Valleys of Enlightenment?
Traveling on a steed called Pain?
How wondrous, this find by the sea.

Longer I stared, deeper its depths,
Though I closed my hand around it.
I can’t, I won’t be hypnotized.
How wondrous, this find by the sea.
