Royal Diamonds

A friend just wrote
And posted about diamonds.
Glistening beauty
Come from pressure
From the meanest stuff
Found deep below.
Sturdy now
Beyond all else.
Capturing
Wondrous Light;
Not hoarding it
But letting it go
Almost immediately
Sparkling.

Others marvel,
Lifting delicately
The little gem.
Feeling it
Turning it
Watching the Son
Show through.
And this diamond cuts
Nothing withstands its substance.
Moulded as it was
Cut as it was
By Heaven’s Lapidary
And for His display
And purpose.

Shine on
Little one.
Indestructible.
