When a Heart Breaks

When
a heart breaks
… Elements conspire
earth
heaves~
and its seams
come undone
magic
by waves
is spun
unrequited
love’s saline
tears get
captured
between lips
of mother
of pearland
a thing of
beauty
is born
pristine
pure
opalescent
priceless
pearls
~
(painting: Girl With A Pearl Earring)
