I opened my mouth to sing, and out emerged a pebble
Unblemished, golden, luminescent
my dreams
My lips parted in delight, and a diamond slipped between
like a kiss of ice
As I knelt in the grass, I let them fall
Sapphire and ruby, onyx and pearl
My thoughts and hopes and dreams and desires
formed a path of perfect stones
I followed

mirrored shards of memory scattered among the jewels

bleakly reflecting what lay ahead
at last I came upon a crystal sea
where I paused, and stood waiting
Then, in the glow of the moon
I sang out a breeze, which carried me across.
I am still crossing

I like this very very much... The second and third line have a very simple, really actually perfect quality to them:

"unblemished, golden, luminescent

my dreams"

Love the symbolism. =)
