I wrote the following poem to remind myself, and anyone else reading it, that we are all “under construction”, and our lives’ patterns and outcomes are not yet completed.

Crystal Formation


reflecting light

in hundreds of brilliant rays

so beautiful

you catch my breath

hold my eye

sand and lead

your substance

intense heat

your creation

twisting and pulling

your formation

I too

am crystal

under construction


through the heat of life

twisted and turned

by its events

pulled a hundred ways



until my design

pleases the master’s eye
