any picture comes to my mind,
i try to give it a body of words,
love to sit on other blooms,
for honey, color, fragrance........
those memories do...and the shaping of a pearl...much like the making of a diamond makes for an interesting process...neither gentle...and the pearl begins as a grain of sand...irritating....and then layered
I do like the idea that iridescent memories last forever. I think that each pearl carries its heritage with it..
Some say pearls are formed out of the tears of mermaids, from being broken to a thing of beauty.
Such beautiful lines: "Labored hardTo string each dream pieceBuilding up takes a life timeNot breaking"
Iridescent dreams do last forever, I'd like to think they do.
My thoughts will go to this the next time I wear my pearls.
They do indeed! A lovely poem.www.keithsramblings.com
Yes those iridescent memories are treasures indeed.
Sumana,I hate that time when a string of pearls or beads snaps, and rolls away...Never quite the same when eventually restrung!! But, it is the memories from times when the pearls were worn, that counts!!!Eileen
"iridescent memories Remain forever" - what a lovely thought. Special memories do take on a kind of luminescent glow, don't they.
I'd like to think that after roughing it through, we can become priceless and polished, it all makes sense, to me, or else's was was it all about reallyMuch love...
'building up takes a lifetime not breaking' loved this line and the whole poem, beautifulWoolen Socks
iridescent pearl drops - What a magical opening line, the wonder of such a beautiful simple thing. This was quite beautiful.
If it keeps memories alive that is a great thing to have. More so the aesthetic value it carries. Great lines Sumana!Hank
Well done, Sumana. I really like "twine of love" and the line "Building up takes a lifetime". It seems like this poem is saying that the fruits of love do not happen overnight but instead take much work and dedication. I fully agree.
Such a lyrical poem.
each memory as a pearl...that's beautiful!
Such lovely imagery in your poem! A beautiful response to the prompt.
I admire the imagery of creating that beautiful pearl, a twine of love ~ Lovely share Sumana ~
I love the mood you've created here ...
What a beautiful image of humanity you have painted in your poetry here Sumana.
Lovely words and images, Sumana.
