Heat and Pressure

Flashes ephemeral

Jewels of glass, set upon my brow


Perspiration is my crown

Ruling over visions

Extracting diamonds from within

Pressure forming stones that glisten

Reflecting light most dim

Beauty juxtaposed to coal black origins

The many facets, faces looking back

Telling a history of life beneath the cracks

Ages passed before emergence



Making diamonds in the darkness
