Crystalline connected

on my antique oak bedside rests
a gem like box with a pearly lid
never shown to any of my guests
my private treasury since I was a kid

picking it up with my open hands
I treasure every pearly inch
in the light of the sun a miracle lands
my eyes in need for a squinch

wary unlocking of the fragile split antique caps 
my mother's crystal angel displays
my guardian angel's light and love wraps
around my heart and soul in so many ways

a crystalline entity perpetual blooming in my eyes
in heaven her sparkling crystal clear star still flies

©Elly Wouterse (not native English  but so proud to be native Dutch)

    Dear Elly, Guess I'll have to leave for a while as the tears are flowing. My mother's been gone for 30 years and I know how much the crystal angel means to you. It is your connection to her spirit. Just recently my house was burglarized and my mother's rings were stolen. They were my connection. We'll see them again in the next life. Bless you, dear. Love, Carolyn P.S. (Your English is impeccable.)
