from The Endless Repetition of an Ordinary Miracle by Poet Laureate of South Carolina, Marjory Wentworth.

WHAT SHINES

Tears falling that no one sees

familiar voices

voices you love and the bells

ringing at the end of day

seedlings

sprouting on the windowsill

the future

fish scales

iced braches

after the storm

a choir

cloud covered stars

everyone's soul

white candles glowing

at the church entrance

desire

unspent

coins in a saucer

hair filled with sunlight

or water

what the diamond means
