Frozen to perfect, stiff, fixed and fast, 
Forever replicating exact,
Transparent colours of love and beauty, 
Forever being abstract,

She’s a water kingfisher, with a purple song box, 
Or ocean wave smashing to shore,
Forever being a shimmering dog, 
Or a magnificently powerful horse,

She can be hard and solid, reliably strong, 
Unflinching to hurt, rage or pain,
Or she can be a delicate fragile of perilously weak, 
Carrying your toast of champagne,

She’s our beautiful glass, our goblet of glaze, 
Our sculptured trichromatic quartzite,
She’s everything beautiful wrapped into one, 
Illuminating a rainbow of light.
