Private Diamonds


JB sent the following to me yesterday accompanied by his photograph (above) taken in our wet west garden:

Private Diamonds

Pain guides our lives very well.
Take the stone from your shoe
and by a miracle it replaces itself,
a private diamond. The peony buds
know exactly who they are and say so.
