Diamonds Lie

moon-and-starsA single stone,
Broken,
Clearly
Defining the
Elements of
Falsehood,
Gazing wistfully
Headlong
Into the darkness:
Juxtaposing stars and moon,
Kindred spirits
Lighting the way to
Morning from
Night.
Obligatory
Promises made,
Questions unanswered,
Remorse and
Sadness ooze from a
Troubled body
Unbidden, once
Vibrant in early
Womanhood, now a
Xenolith lost to
Youth, a mere
Zirconia replicant.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
