Filtered Through The Oyster - Poem by maggie oke

Filtered through the oyster
All the dirt and all the strife
Filtered through the oyster
The pearl becomes my life
Filtered through the oyster
Blind in pearly glow
Want to bask in beauty only
Every hurt has fixed its price

    Superb! I love the mix of analogy and subject matter, amply covered in eight lines. Esra Sloblock (Report)Reply
