Saturday's Poem

My Writer’s Notebook by Brod Bagert
It’s a black and white composition notebook,
A hundred pages
with blue line
that await my words:

Diamond Search
My life lies before me
Like the bed of a shallow river.
My fingers sift sand and gravel
For the rough diamonds that lie hidden.
And as I find them
I put them in this notebook.
I write… I cut… I polish…
And they shine.

My words on an empty page
In an ordinary notebook,
The silver setting for the jewels of my life.
