April 25 – Glass Class

I am a geode, she said.

Round, shaped like the earth,

Rough and crusty on the outside.

But inside me, at my core,

There is treasure!

Dazzling crystals,

Amethyst, jasper, celestite,

Beautiful natural jewels,

Formed slowly over time,

Banded with concentric rings.


…I never knew what lay within

Until I was split open, broken apart,

And exposed to the light…
