Shell game


It starts as an irritant
taken within
covered with layer after layer
of soft soothing 
hardening smoothing
then bursting forth
not as it was
but as it now is
beautiful

Thanks to The Mag

If it was about the patience and all that it takes it would not be worth it. Usually though it is not that deliberate but instead comes along with the total distraction so kindly added to it all. We do the work by hook or crook. Only the most obsessed among us approach it directly over and over.

I love reading through the process you have described so purposefully, DCW..... pearl formation is definitely a dance on the cosmic wind.... right up your alley. =D Thank you for sharing.
