Beneath The Subtle Crack

Boulder Opal

In glorious beauty found

beneath the surface of imperfection

through perfections view,

the softest flow of illusion

greets the soul of peace.

We find ourselves gazing outward

with an inward perception

seeing each flaw we dive deeper,

knowing below the cracks

our history waits for release.

Fingers touch the smoothness

of each new day that finds us waiting

for fresh eyes to glance upwards

at the ever moving skies

and hopes of connection to the invisible link,

we are reborn like the cells that create

the cumbersome body.

In the moment of awareness we know

somewhere beneath the subtle crack

the escape of ego has occurred

leaving us beautiful and free

despite the facades illusion,

beauty will always remain.
