Sea Glass, a real gem

Sea glass: poetry in nature

We always love to go deeper
   into the ocean to dive for black pearls
Or farther at the other end of the rainbow
   to look for treasures like a pot of gold
Or to find diamonds that’s so rare
   that we must dig very deeper into dark caves

Never knowing that some treasures are—
    unlike gold that’s non-translucent, yellow and dark
    unlike diamonds that’s too bright and blinding
    unlike pearls that’s white or black and iridescent
They are not like any crystal glass, not highly transparent

Sometimes they are but opaque
With colors like of amber or emerald
   Or like jade or turquoise
They are crafted by nature like unbreakable stones
Hardened, sculpted and polished by the ocean waves
   and washed ashore
   yet hardly noticeable.

Sea glass, a real gem.
