The Rarest of Treasures
Dedicated to Iris
An oyster found.
The beauty inside intriguing; a mystery.
Its shell pried open.
Inside a resplendent pearl resided,
Shining pure and white.
Immense beauty reflecting in all its facets.
Its flaws others criticize;
A foolish preoccupation indulged out of ignorance.
Body bruised by battling the sea.
With an incredible will to endure; to live on.
It emerged victorious with scars celebrating experiences and knowledge.
Forever a survivor, forever a precious gift with all its tarnishes .
How breathtakingly profound the pearl was, who can compare.
