Pearls

She dreamt of pearls

Lots of pearls

She loved the feel of them

The weight of them

The purity of them

She respected the old process

The divers who braved sharks

And unknowns

In the blue water depths

Holding their breath

Hunting for oysters

Nature is truly impressive

It takes a tiny grain of sand

And turns it into a beautiful jewel

She dreamt of pearls

Lots of pearls
