It may shine sparkle and tinkle
make you smile with each look
how much did it cost how much
did you pay, just to smile and say
to the silent ‘unravished glass’-what
makes you shine? what myriads of
dust particles you hold as treasure?
what skillful hands gave you your shape
and made you so grand?
But fear engulfs me when I touch you
how smooth and firm and yet so fragile
you are- a careless slip and transformed
you are, in a thousand pieces,scattered
the eyes make crystals as they too join them
O Thou reflector of transparency,mirroring
life, seeing through the thin veil…unlike the flesh
feeling less, what beauty lies within the cold glass
None’ but vacant emptiness…momentary pleasure
one glance chance …what scars of life you show
No color ,,,for colors bring joy and joy brings peace
Look away, it is not here, I will break soon and not
shine, stay away for in my cuts and beauty lies
Pray do not love me nor place me high
but look at the stars that shine in the sky
There is truth up there….where there is truth
seek true peace…there..
Peace is not in a crystal jar….
