Sapphire: Where I'm From

September 26, 2008
By C.F. Howsy, Hollsopple, PA

I am from the waters,
Deep and blue in splendor.
Cool and calming,
Let my rain wash away your cares.

I am from intelligence,
The deep thought in all.
Superior and strong,
All ideas are my reality.

I am from the sky,
Where cool oxide fills the lungs.
Rich and tasty,
My breathtaking beauty
Will fill you with hope.

I am not from depression,
Where silver linings can’t be found.
Glistening water falls,
As tear drops when you cry.

No matter where I am,
Nor where I come from,
A blue sapphire lets time,
Move faster for us.
