Crystals of Light by Jane Taylor Hardy

erstwhile a halcyon extant universe incessantly ceaseless
cradled itself in hues of violet phosphorescence
laced with cobalt shimmering stars 
perpetually whole it nonetheless
sought to know itself

encompassing all that is bubbling over in effervescent ebullience
intertwined with indescribable catastrophic splendor
it shattered into tens of millions of splinters
of eloquent efflorescent light 
shining in the night

each splinter heretofore imbued with sempiternal felicity 
began to conjure sumptuous dulcet elixirs 
furtively seeking out savory emollients
to mollify the pique of separation
plummeting they fell 

into monstrous competition seeking demesne they lost the purpose
of gaining awareness and intelligent consciousness
surreptitious estrangement overflowed
deluging them in excruciating agony
thus an epiphany was born

the carving of the beleaguered fragments inked with tremendous pain 
created a transfiguration of splinters to crystals 
hence enlightenment commenced as the gems
magnetized together constructing a world
where omnipotence shines

the ineffable beauty formed by the reintegration of crystals
far exceeds the original as they dazzle with universal light
bursting from diamonds etched in deep wisdom 
flooding the firmament with kaleidoscopic
rainbow strobes cascading the sky
