Geode, a Resemblance

Geode, a Resemblance

A Poem by Michael R. Burch

Geode, a Resemblance
by Michael R. Burch

Take this geode with its rough exterior
crude-skinned, brilliant-hearted ...

a diode of amethyst―wild, electric;
its sequined cavity―parted, revealing.

Find in its fire all brittle passion,
each jagged shard relentlessly aching.

Each spire inward―a fission startled;
in its shattered entrails―fractured light,

the heart ice breaking.
