A Heart of Lapis

Heart of Lapis poem


The most beautiful stones adorn my neck
Like an Ancient Egyptian collar.
Two glistening balls of onyx sit on top,
Followed by a double stretch of coral.
At the center is a lapis heart,
Deeper in color than the Red Sea waters.
And I am so grateful for this heavenly gift;
This precious necklace is
My daughter.
