Crystal Clear Tapestry

It's true that my youth has escaped me. Yet I am assuredly calm. For the passage of time has just shaped me. Experience heals like a balm. The deep crystal waters surround me. Pristine they're not but so clear. No longer do these things confound me. I grasp all the ones I hold dear. Now with most moments spent there is laughter. Those hot tears released quickly dried. A lifetime of joy's all I'm after. Forget all the times that I cried. As I gaze at the waters of time it's crystal clear where I've traveled. These pages of my book sublime; a tapestry can't be unraveled. written March 8th, 2014 by Deb Wilson for contest "Metaphor: Crystal"
