Poem & photo by Ingrid Bruck  

Costume Jewelry

Sun comes as a thief

tip toeing into day.

Light sways,

trees crackle.

Rhinestone light spills

on crystal webs,

trees blaze

with diamonds.

She bends down,

stretches out long fingers,

strokes the glint and glitter

on branches and twigs,

and picks off jewels

adorning bare trees.

Ice sparks

swirl and fly,

rainbows shatter,

drop and clink.

Sun opens her hands

to admire her treasures,

they’re empty,

she’s been robbed.
