Pearls In A Strand - Poem by Ludvig Von Himmelstein

truth is the pearl
with surface sometimes dull
not easily found
a fake often sold
but seamless it is smooth
a piece of space and matter
iteratively transformed
until a fixed fractal
reached and no more debate
will the pearl deform
the pearl is found in wonder,
the pearl found in love,
the pearl found by not
accepting a fake
nor treating other seekers
with scorn.
To find the pearl
you may go hungry
or go to sleep confused
angst you will suffer
but the pearls once found
will become a self
similar strand
interwoven in your soul
