on writing a poem
I string words like pearls,
Knotting silence between each one
like silk thread
in a jewelers skillful hands.
built with love.
strategic placing of diamonds
sometime a sparkling, featured,
always taking special care with the hardware,
the finishing is the most important.
it must stand up to daily use.
easy for right or left hands alike.
then on to a final polish before bagging
when each piece is complete.
