Crystal Thoughts


Poetry Jam

Crystal Clear

Life is not always crystal clear
sometimes you only see what you hear
sometimes sound goes from ear to ear?
all that garble can leave some fear

I often want a crystal ball
then I might know if I was going to fall
them you can know and see all?
better to not know as I recall

I wear a crystal on a gold chain
a Mother gift so it will remain
a energy source to keep me sane
maybe helps I can't complain

Packing crystal glasses I never use
why stuff to get confused
why the history I can not loose?
saving and re-saving is not new news

Crystal clear sky with stars so high
need this at night as time goes by
need to see daily....that birds can fly?
When I need calming I look at the sky

Moving stones both crystal and granite
seems like I an moving the whole planet
seems I need time to sit
Stop...Type a poem....That's it!

  3. Enjoyed all of your stanzas. I empathize with the one about crystal. I have some family crystal that no one uses...but we keep it for the sake of keeping it as family treasure, but what is a treasure that is not used?
