There’s a diamond in your eye,
like an ocean out of space,
that shimmers like a moonstream
in another time and place.
Glacial blue flames that stir
a smile to a grizzly brute.
A heart filled with dazzling sapphires
makes the gloomy world mute.
Softly, I hear your raindrop voice
whispering on the windowpane
of the time when robin’s eggs two
held my life under their sweet reign.
But now there is only grey.
My fingers talon the callous dirt,
as I try to touch your face
where you’re buried in the earth.
