Free Verse # 11

Long and hard
I toiled for the pearl of wisdom,
plunging into the deepest,
most turbulent ocean of thought,
and staying awake on many a night
oblivious to the stars
polishing its surface
with the oil of my heart
until at last,
swelling with pride,
its waves carried my pearl
as a gift into the house of love
where, placed upon its table,
its hammer swiftly fell
grinding it to nothing
and filling me with dawn.
