Day 21 Under the Microscope

Under the Microscope

The jeweler showed us

(his prospective customers)

how the cut of the diamond

effected the price.

The finer the cut,

the clearer the diamond,

and the more expensive.

A tiny diamond could be

far more costly

than a big flashy one.

For years, I questioned myself,

about my impulsive decision

when I pointed to the smallest

well-cut one as the one I wanted,

and my fiancé, eager to please,

didn’t question me.

Looking back, I think

I subconsciously chose

to not value appearance so much,

but  something inward,

pure, valuable, unpretentious

like I wanted our relationship,

 a  true gem, love being the fine cut.
