Curse of the Opal

Opal is the birthstone for the month of October. You may have heard that the opal brings bad luck and is an evil stone. Some people claim that's not true, while others know better. A poem in honor of my latest release — Opal's Disappearance.

Curse of the Opal
A Beautiful Opal
Burns With Fire
The Brilliant Colors
Like New Lovers Desire
Hot Glowing Color
From A Rainbow Of Hue
Given By An Admirer
Whose Heart Is True

A Gift From The Heart
To One That Is Loved
The Sparkle So Pure
Like The Stars Up Above
The Stars With Their Sparkle
That Dance Round The Moon
The Rainbow Of Colors
Could Spell Pending Doom

The Opal Is Worn
By Only A Few
And Worn Without Fear
If Your Birthmonth Is True
Do Not Try To Lie
Do Not Try To Cheat
The Curse Of The Opal
Is Bittersweet

I read this poem already but thank you again for sharing. It's simple and yet fits perfectly and tells a story.

Thanks Debby. Poetry isn't my top talent that's for sure.
