It is the pure mystery of amethyst
that inhabits my world
It glows in dawn light along
 receding shadows.
Cool, enticing it embraces my soul
Adds those  fresh dimensions to trees 
in  rain-swept meadows.
Everywhere, I see its shades repeat –
in the marbling of shells -sheen on a bird’s wing- 
veins in a rock - flower petals -
I wrap myself each morning in its lighter shades-
 cool,  lavender chiffon, and you come to me
the magic of amethyst in your kiss.
