Conceived in darkness far from land Such beauty from a piece of sand Bathed in the arms of the emerald sea Marvelous that the pearl came to be Luster heightens through the years Perhaps softened by my lady's tears Once nestled in her gilded chest On red velvet they safely rest She cradled them in her gentle hand Each one held by a silken strand Then falling 'neath her auburn hair A gift from nature hanging there The pearl's beauty we do embrace Such a simple gem of lasting grace

    Barbara you awaken the wonderment of a pearls nature's beauty. You've expressed your Sonnet wonderfully. Part of the charm is the inherent airiness of your penned words, coupled with a solid message of how a pearl is formed and admired. Best wishes in the contest. Warm Smiles, Connie
