Diamond

a poem by Gayathri Swaminathan

Glittering all way,
Like the heavenly stars,
Making heart sway,
Amidst hundred wars,
Innately elegant in element
And meek in it’s light,
I see a shimmering glory, of HIS creation
Glistening all while in reconciliation.
The beauty of the glittering ocean,
In front of my eyes,
Bringing light, in cool rain!
This may be, the light of the earth under,
Showing it’s inimitable wonder.
The moonbeam of a woman’s love, I see in thee
Tender rays, embrace all over me.
To be this little eye of light,
Oh! that heat and torpidity and what not!
Moulded by the warmth of mother nature,
And patterned by thy adept creator,
You would stay adorned and cherished!
By those fragile minds,
Treasured and lauded
In numerous kinds!
