Pearls

pearls that you’d once
so lovingly showered had been
squandered by your wet behind
ears fool, non discerning,

Now,

as bouts of nostalgia wrack
heart, head, this dreary blah
December, my seeking hands
brush against your string of pearls

as I stroke their translucence, heart
twists and then retrieves those precious
pearls of wisdom you’d once showered realizing
the true worth of your astonishing legacy
