This poem is inspired by a series of commercials talking about significant people, things, or events in history.


Jewels Of The Sea



Pearls--symbols of the moon...

nature in tune:

result of a defense mechanism, an iridescent vision coming from one of the sea's secluded daughters: member of the marine ones...


Oestridae...the Oyster




A glowing example, a jewel shut away in an aquatic cloister...


Desired by royalty, inspiring people's fantasy, classic, a globe of
light; unique in it's luminosity, a trademark of style: part of
Coco Chanel's look...that's all it took to be part of an image
so sublime...
An image so fine--pearls, jewels from the deep, a foreign object in a
shell becomes so sweet, a commodity of the elite...

Crystalline Lining

A Treasure Defining One Of Nature's Finest Rarities...


A miracle beyond measure--signifying beauty and space...


A gorgeous bauble for the human race--

It's funny how this thing becomes so valued when it
came from dubious beginnings...

But there it is, the pearl which is the heart of the ocean--


A thing celebrated, embraced, not an object to be
shunned...


Priceless Gloriousness has just begun:


Nature's gift made under the sun.
