to be hard of edge

Seems on most days
I just crumble
where historically
my cabochon resisted.

I need a faceter
to re-define my edges,
create brilliance
where I’ve grown soft.

Mayhap yon lapidary
will appreciate
the asteria inside
and coax it to blossom.

  2. It seems silly to wax about jewels given what came after writing this.
