Days at the Tucson Gem Show whiz by,
with access to thousands of stones
from every nook of this planet or farther flung.
These timeless beings,
that we have the honor to behold
and possibly hold,
have been here for thousands,
millions, and in some cases billions of years.
They have so much to teach us,
so much to share.
Each one an emissary of earth
or the space that surrounds her.
Their story is epic;
beyond time we can imagine,
beyond scale we can fathom.
And yet we are given the opportunity
to host these beings in our lives.
To adorn our bodies, homes and gardens
with their magnificence,
as they help us to understand
to truth of who we are.
Still in awe after all these years.
