Charming

Link by link,
ticking down tyrannies
on ruby stones, wonderments via
Baltic amber. This bracelet is red,
  endlessly
counts fools until overwhelm sets in.
Occasional yellow
keeps balance.

For Susie’s prompt on Day 7 of Poetry Month: BRACELET

  1. What a pretty but dangerous bracelet you describe.

  2. The wording you used paint an image of blood and gold and the more than occasional link between them.

  3. Much sturdier than most charm bracelets, Marian. Also the charms tend to fall off.
    I think winners and losers, like feathers in the headdress.

  7. I can imagine the pretty amber bracelet so clearly. I have always loved amber for its origins - something other than stone,pearls too.

  15. Nice to leave this so open, Marian--plenty of room for handcrafting. the colors and the clipped words work well together.

  17. That Baltic just jumps out at me. The Bosphorus, or the Baltic Dry Index - either way, an interesting pen ~
