Purple peaks in crevices found
crystal lights in ancient flows
spark awe and wonder in the hand
as we touch and turn these pieces
chizzled or blasted from the mound.
Ancient as civilization it thrives
ornamental pieces for kings' crowns
or others closer to the earth itself
where crystals invite a private search
and lovers decorate each other's lives.
"Amethustos" from the Greek Isle
mythology attached who knows when.
"Not drunken" it means for given magic
and many believed as we do today.
Or so we say in front of a knowing smile!
