A Million Diamonds


IMG_2144I crossed a bridge today

the sun flashed in my eyes

so brilliantly I could not see

cutting out squares of shadow on

a shortbread path

a million diamonds


and held me in their grasp

bounding off the canal

and drawing me to the railing


to bask and be blinded

until the cloud’s cloak

broke the spell

    Lovely. I especially liked the images of the shortbread path and cloud cloak.
