PEARL OF WISDOM

Pearl of Wisdom



Everyone knows it happens every morning
this life, that it is starting
just a soft sliver of sun shimmer on the scintillating surface of the salty sea
like a bubble ready to burst
that we call a daybreak.
All of us, standing on the cliffs of dawn, 
marveling in this neverending beginning,
waiting for the warm rays to melt night off our moist wings. Statues of flesh
poised for plunging we close our eyes, tumble
and fall into the deep water of the white lake like empty shells
holding our breath in the dive of life
searching for our pearl


Wrapped in a ultra luxurious matrix of aragonite (or is it calcite?)
a small grain of love long ago began to bead
each year more lustrous than the last it is now impenetrable and bigger than the universe
it is a world record, this pearl of knowledge that I bear is the mother of all pearls
bigger than my brain, bigger than my heart, bigger than my fear is this love
and then I wait for a reaction...
(I will say anything to put a smile on the face of Anna Karenina)
and I shall be a little late for dinner tonight, my dear in my triumph and hangup
no secret I am cheating with the competing desires of the Princess Eleanor Rigby


Everyone knows we are each made from the collision of stars and dust
yet it is strange that no one has thought to count the waves before now.
Since we are mostly water,
but that was unheard...
Separately, looking quietly down, we walk the wet sands on the edge of the twilight shore
intent on hoarding the precious
our goal to pull through rare shipwrecks for the priceless jewels of wisdom,
the teardrops of god
overlooked by the mermaids
who are sometimes distracted when the moon is blue.


Everyone knows really diamonds are a girl's best friend.
And that pearls are for boys
