Bloodstone #amwriting


Aquamarine bloodless blue

I’ve never been enamored with you

Others had emeralds, opals, or rubies

Deep with color, I had transparency

“blue of the sea” utter simplicity

Until tonight when I discovered

Heliotrope, not the flower

lavender blooming rather

Green Jasper threaded with red

“sun stone” richly hued

This is me, beckoning complexity.

Tomorrow’s healing energy

Discovery awaits, focused.

    • Kathy, yes, I had already started the poem and had an idea when I looked at pics of aquamarine. Some when they’re in their natural state are so gorgeous. I’m Pisces, always swimming in two directions, as this message would indicate. lol


  1. Love this response to the prompt! Most especially these words
    “Green Jasper threaded with red
    “sun stone” richly hued”
    You’ve responded to the complexity of these two gemstones and matched them with the complexity of who you are….beautifully done. I love my birthstone, the emerald….but in reality, there is not a real complexity to the stone…just green. And I do believe I’m more complex than that! Your post here reveals the complexity of who you are and the mystery too…the discovery yet to come.
