Enveloped in the comforting securing warmth of a blinding opal,
I lay comfortably in the solid fragileness of my shell,
The only world I ever knew,
A world in serenity and calm full bliss.
Suddenly, blinding ropes of pearl blades ripple across my familiar covering,
And explode into a blast of brilliant blinding diamonds.
As I look at the golden dust capturing the ensnaring colors of the sky,
Imprinting their glittering shadows of red, green and blue,
And as I discover this new world I see others around me, discovering all the same,
An uncertain future for all of us, a new beginning.
Then I see a shining pearl of sapphires, slipping over the sand, taking us in,
And as the water hits me, I also discover a new universe of hidden mysteries, and glistening whispers floating to the surface
