-Glistening Time-

Not cut or polished
nor facet shaped
neither carat weighed
but a Diamond, none the less.

Jagged rough
hardened tough,
Laying in wait
on gravel ground.

For the Sun's
touching feel,
To arrive at just the right time
from any which, point of view.

With patience, enduring 
to display it's glistening shine
in radiating, far afield
to the attracting eye.

    Thank-you Dear Kim for taking the time to read and accurately construe the intent of my words, and may you continue to dab the skies with rain-bow hues with your words, Thank-you again.

    I guess we are all diamonds in the rough.. waiting to be perfected into sparkling treasures when we meet our Lord and Saviour one day.
