Lost in pearls

I was sorting out my jewelry box and I took few pictures. Later on I wanted to find a quote to attach to the pictures and I must say, there are so many lovely sayings about precious stones that it was hard to choose only one! If you have a favorite jewelry quote, do share with me, please! Enjoy!

Do not judge from mere appearances; for the lift laughter that bubbles on the lip often mantles over the depths of sadness, and the serious look may be the sober veil that covers a divine peace and joy. The bosom can ache beneath diamond brooches; and many a blithe heart dances under coarse wool. ~Edwin Hubbel Chapin

Guard well your spare moments. They are like uncut diamonds. Discard them and their value will never be known. Improve them and they will become the brightest gems in a useful life. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

If wisdom and diamonds grew on the same tree we could soon tell how much men loved wisdom. ~Lemuel K. Washburn

Gold cannot be pure, and people cannot be perfect. ~Chinese Proverb

Mysterious opals contain the wonders of the skies – sparkling rainbows, fireworks, and lightning, shifting and moving in their depths. ~Author Unknown

The most precious jewels are not made of stone, but of flesh. ~Robert Ludlum

Sparks of pink tourmaline, green jade, amethyst, and blue sapphire flash through the cloud of my being, like shooting stars in a cobalt sky. I shed the pyrite, lead, hematite, the heavy, the dross. Lost in a whisper of indigo dreams, like a gray sparrow feather – I  float through Eternity, a fragile-strong willow-wisp of joy. ~ Jamie Dedes

Summer nights

“Oh, the summer night has a smile of light and she sits on a sapphire throne.”

Summer nights

Summer nights,
pearls on royal spread,
I hear you in secret fogs and lulls,
when the winds color my dreams
in turquoise.

Summer nights,
shells breathing warmth,
I feel you in imaginary ripples,
where the memories glow
in ecstasy.

There, in the emerald world of silence,
jellyfish and peach sea flowers whisper.
There, with Poseidon’s gold, unseen and lost
lie the leftovers of enchantment,
the fantasies of rainbows and you.

Breathe love

Breathe love

So many days with blank skies,
tasteless cobalt whirlpools,
radiance in tangerine falling apart and
the sound of my broken heart
beating always the same,
leering at caverns to fit the resonance.

Chasing imaginary trains,
the ground started spinning and
I reached you through rainbows.
In your eyes I found glue for
the clouds of my broken sparkles,
there is no trace of past agony left.

The sun is rising again, almost,
and in your words the world is safe,
I don’t need wall of endless wires.
In your smile I see a line of stars,
in your arms I’ve found the ocean’s touch,
through your kiss I breathe love …
