Treasure Me

If I were a statue
made of glass from the sea 
Would you gaze upon the shards
to see my inner beauty

I would stand up tall, gaze longingly
At the sun on your face, 
bright as stars could be
A frozen form, glistening lovingly 

Caress me slowly there is no hurry
Yield to the cracks of times great fury
Every facet, every shine, with all its beauty
This statue made of treasure, glass from the sea

*And another beautiful Collab with Dan Kearley* 6-10-12

    very beautiful! this has a great flow to it and I love the picture it paints. I really like the last stanza's 1st 2 lines - delicate and slow and getting to know it, accepting the cracks :) p.s. i pasted this so you both would have the same message - a wonderful collaboration!

    Dan I have known for a while. I am sorry I've not read your work until this collab. Beautiful job together and I shall read more of your words as well.
