The Embrace

The embrace that steals you,
like a pearl secretly picked from the sea,
as a tremolo that benumbs you
from the innumerable sounds of the world
to leave you in the company of a glitter-
a matte, flattened, embedded glitter of the pearl,
naked, pure,
in essence and beauty,
deprived of the gaudy finery,
is the embrace one lives for.

    The poem itself is no less than a pearl cased in oyster. A single thought has been enticingly woven in a single sentence. This effortless magic only a poetic soul can do.Inspired.
