The poem that accompanies these beautiful gifts from the earth is a poem I ran across online by a young irish Poet who goes by the pseudonym Drax. If you'd like to read more of his poetry, please visit his hubpages here.
|Rough Opal from SenorPyro|
I feel the stone
|Jasper from 49erMinerals|
and through the stone
|Malachite from 49erMinerals|
and my past,
and my future,
|Larimar from AstarteEarthArt|
as I am grounded in my present.
|Aragonite from BeadHeavenInc|
in the ridges and hollows,
are the rise and fall of my heart,
Tanzanite in Zoisite
as I live out my destiny.
to tell of the earth.
|Azurite from CrystalMineralGifts|
to tell of the journey,
my journey on the surface of the stone,
|Tiger's Eye from Orca4kk|
I am but a dust mote
pitched from place to place
on the whim of the wind.
|Simbercite with Pyrite |
I scatter some seeds of poems
to be carried on the beaks of birds,
|Rutilated Phantom Quartz|
to be mixed in the whispers of the wind,
for the one who will hear my message,
|Labradorite Ring from BeijoFlor|
and come to me bearing treasure.
|Andara Glass* from Kuberacove|
the treasure of truth,
|Amethyst Cluster |
in that one line
|Ruby from gempalace|
Do you have a favorite type of stone? Were you, or are you still, a closet rockhound? I'd love to hear your stories of that one special stone that you found... or bought... and why it is so special to you. In my case, I have a worry stone (which is much, much smoother than it already was when I received it!) made of rose quartz that I carried with me for many years through many worries - and while I don't have as much need for it anymore, it has become a reminder of how much inner strength I managed to call up when I needed it. Funny how something so small could play such an important role.
