The Perfect Pearl

A gain of sand
inside a shell
irritates until
the oyster begins
to cover the sand
with luminescent colors
forming a perfect pearl.

How I wish I could do that
transform each irritant
into a beautiful
pearl of wisdom.

Oh, but you can, my child
Just layer it with love
and soon you will have
another perfect pearl.
