As if dust were diamonds

As if dust were diamonds

A Poem by An owl on the moon
"

air running circles around you…

"
































 
 
 
 


Breathing,

air running circles

around you…

And my eyes

catching fireflies

in slowing motion…

Emerald emotions

caress my memory,

piecing me into you

fragment by fragment…

Webs laced in liquid

filling in the spaces;

hollowed time

where there had been

only gray empty…

And you come

stand in my mind,

changing everything

as if dust were diamonds…

Enchanting and dreamy, superbly passionate expressing the deepest most profound feelings of awe in the presence of Love.

Such an amazing piece of literature. My only critism is the title. It should be As if Dust Were Diamonds, in all capitals beside the 'if'. I see that far too commonly on this website. Other than that, stellar imagery. Bravo.

My favorite: "Emerald emotions
caress my memory,
piecing me into you
fragment by fragment…"
This whole piece is filled with unique imagery, which I truly appreciate. I take this poem, particularly the last couple lines, to mean that this love has the power to transform anything in your mind, as if dust could be diamonds. "Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder". Talented piece!
