Poetry Jam "Kyanite"


Kyanite

My cat's eye
blinks silver and blue

flashes sapphire
in the light

polished luster
wards off evil

they say.  All I know
is this striped gem,

cold and smooth,
reminds me of you.

Linked with Poetry Jam "Your Stripes, My Stripes".  HERE is a beautiful pendant made from Kyanite.  Not a cat's eye, thought.  For that beautiful cut click HERE.

The above photo I took while touring a museum in the Appalachian Mountains. - although I really don't think that is where this inexpensive gem is found...

Kyanite is beautiful! And I DO see that the coloration would be similar to that of a cat's eye!

Thanks for your support of Poetry Jam. That means a lot. Smiles.

Well done.

Peggy said...

Wonderful poem and photo. You have such a great photographic eye. The twist at the end of the poem is particularly effective!

You give us a good look at what should be valued, and why. BTW... you may enjoy the International Gem & Mineral Show that takes place in Tucson every February. Biggest in the world!

This is when I have a hankering to polish stones! I think that would be such a fun hobby, don't you?! :)
