Picking Diamonds

I was picking diamonds from the heavens
When my hair got tangled with the stars in the breeze
Fireflies reached up in glee too, their soft glow dancing
Singing our mirth awash with moon-paint, I smiled

Then the night tugged gently, pulling away the sky
For the dawn to stroll in, with her show-stopper colors
The diamonds in my hands were spilling their brilliance
Reaching down to earth, to jewel my silent hopes

I learned to fly with the winds on rapture 
Their swoosh, music to my hopes on wish-pegs
They warm themselves in the summer-sun promises
Waiting to burst alive on my future rainbows  

Some nomads we pick treasures from the future
The skies and nature our only witness
We walk with them prized in our hunting bags
Carrying hope in its precious revered status

    This is beautiful and nicely crafted. Thanks for the share... Sometimes its refreshing visiting old poems of soupers... Its amazing, the freshness which comes from doing this... And that is exactly my enjoyment visiting this piece

    Bindu, WOW this is so beautiful, what imagery, I feel that you've taken me on a walk amongst the dawn, and beyond. You've textured every layer of verse so well, it's a though a flight of steps emerging into the very vaults of heaven themselves. I'm simply spell bound captured within your enchanting work, nicely done my dearest Bindu, your truly a marvelous writer, cheri
