Gazing at my five crystal friends
Though mere stones, they seemed bonded for life
As they sit atop my angel altar
Happy and glowing, peaceful in each other’s presence.
Five of them, all alike and unlike
Clear white, with streaks, cuts and bruises
Specks of green and rainbow colours
Reflecting all of their splendour to me.
“Soulmates we are”, they began their story
“Eons old, together we travelled
Journeying along through different ages
Meeting mammoths, mankind, creatures of all sorts.
Breathing in air, sometimes under water
Atop mountains or hidden in deep caverns
Wherever we are, our energies vibrate
To a single rhythm with an elevated soul.
Our experiences are no less than yours
Love, loneliness, pain, we’ve seen it all
Gathered through our voyage across time
Across elements, across cultures as civilization unfolded.
These little cuts on us are scars of a memory
Painful sometimes, sad and despairing
These streaks and bruises also sing a story
Of an unkind Nature, shooting her molten lava around.
We tumbled and rolled, losing each other at times
Oh! The pain of separation! Unbearable sheer torture
As one lies alone amidst strange rocks
Silent tears solidifying into this pattern you see.
Finally we meet, as we are picked up by little hands
Angels, little children, fascinated by our patterns
They smoothe us with their loving hands
Clean us with precious sparkling water.
Here we are for you, grateful as we are
To be together forever, in your little corner
Pick us up, when you feel down and low
We can wipe your tears, as they flow from your soul.
Though not of flesh, not of your kind
We feel, we pulsate, throb and vibrate
Know that only forms and shapes differ
Emotions and sentiments, deep down, stay same…..
