Rain-diamonds, this winter morning,
embellish the tangle of unpruned pear-tree twigs;
each solitaire, placed, it appears,
with considered judgement,
bears the light beneath the rifted clouds —
the indivisible shared out in endless abundance.
~Denise Levertov “Bearing the Light”
Indivisible inestimable abundance —
as belighted jewels
descend from heaven
to adorn the plain and meager
such grace falling like rain,
to cling like sequins sparkling
on our veil of tears.
