…On Poetry and Fiction
Just “One Word” Away ("Diamonds")
written by: Phyllis P. Colucci
One word becomes one idea, becomes one sentence, becomes one poem, becomes one story. It must start from just “one word”. Today my one word is “Diamonds”.
People are like diamonds; eventually all cut to perfection. Some shine brilliantly, others glow softly. We come in various shapes, sizes and colors - all worth our weight in precious gems and gold. We are so individually intricate and unique in every way. Some of us are nearly perfect, some mediocre, while others still a work in progress. It is true we may be measured by our beauty, yet we are each adored greatly as one of the many jewels in the world’s multifaceted population. Once we take our rightful place in society, we then strive to become that perfectly-graded Diamond.
Cut, clarity, color and carat
Light of the Gods
Reflective of excellence
Blue or icy white
Worth its weight in treasure
A rare Gem of nature
Or a Diamond in the rough
Like the peoples of the world
Each cut to its worth
Poor, Middle or Rich Class
- Simply measured by quantity
- Greatly cherished by quality
NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:
People are like "Diamonds"...always struggling to be that one perfect Gem; measured by quantity and cherished by quality.
I retired from a Supervisory/Admin position with a Federal Law Enforcement agency in NYC, a few years back.
Presently, I am pursuing my passion for writing, and most of my writing has that New York edge.
