Rusty Broadspear

A myriad of microscopic rainbows
Flail and fly in frantic moments
As the fragile crystal bursts wide open.

A poignant, cheerless spectacle.
Head hanging as I leave,
I quietly close the door.

Days of void followed.
Deep panic in the forest of gloom.
Drained of tears.

Then - painful, hopeful moments,
Like receiving Cupid's darts..........
Inspiration and realization!
A shard of crystal, is embedded, in my heart.

Imperceptibly pulsating, radiating
Trust and expectation.
Only a shard,
A fragment of optimism, a seed.........

Is all I need.
