Gospel Diamond Exquisite Poem by Doug Blair


Formed under great pressure

In profoundly deep places

Made of the common stuff

Somehow marvelously transformed

Thrilling the heart

When brought to Light

Indestructible

Treasured search of many lives

Cutting through all things

Having many facets

Each one Glorious

Depths of beauty never fully explored

Not meant to be hidden

Under a bushel

But given to others

For their delight and edification

Stunningly, many of your kind

Are blood diamonds

With intense tales

Of suffering coming to the surface

When we see the beauty

Flashing through prism

Pain is forgotten

Except for that One Pain

Paid for us

Now ever shining

With Incomparable Light.

Ever appreciated.

Flashing through the Ages

Evidence of betrothal.
