Flowers Turned Jewel

 Flowers Turned Jewel

Flower jewels lined a hill, 
they shimmered in
the morning sun,
clinked in 
spring wind.

Flowers turned jewel.
Iris to purple spinal, 
roses to rubies,
lilies to white pearls.

Everyone wanted one, 
to make homes sparkle 
to keep crows from entering.

So men boarded ships with axes, 
women with woven baskets
and the Grim Reaper's footsteps 

Flowers turned jewel
daisies to diamonds
lavender to purple garnet
blue hydrangeas to sapphire.

Greedy eyes were blinded 
from glimmering jewels.

Axes swung, flowers
missed, diamonds turned 
ruby. The garden was
watered for another season.

Flowers turned jewel.
