Her Flaws Are Preserved in Amber


Her flaws are preserved in amber,

cryogenic perpetuations cropping up

in her seedlings –

unless she warms up to the possibility

that grace

glows gold…

    Very nice! I’ll have to study up on that amber stuff–I’ve heard of it as a preservative, but don’t know anything beyond that (or you could give me a sketchy lesson???). And, sometimes grace glows silver….

      Silver is definitely more your style. Amber – I don’t know much about it either, except that prehistoric insects have supposedly been found perfectly preserved. ????

        Well, it’s more than a little late for the amber, then–I could have been perfectly preserved 20 yrs ago, but we’d have both missed out on what I would become, “silvered”. So I think I’ll just be grateful–pass the chips, please–and I’ll go get us the new jar of salsa!

  2. Lovely thought – “grace glows gold.” Melody, I like this ice art!

    This poem is gold. I especially love the first line and the photo pairing. Beautiful writing, Melody.

    I hope she warms up to the idea of grace! … it might not stay amber … but may turn a beautiful shade of crimson πŸ™‚

    We got our daughter an amber kit this last year. We’ve rubbed and rubbed and tried to see what’s inside . ..but it’s pretty tough to tell! I love your poem and pic .. much clearer!

    So it seems you will live thousand of years, preserved under the endless snow over there πŸ™‚
