Surviving Domestic Violence

Star Sapphire


The remarkable hardness of sapphires—9 on the Mohs scale is the second hardest mineral, right behind the diamond at 10.

I took this photo of the sun and it reminds me so much of the Star Sapphire.  It’s beauty is beyond words.

I love your heart

I love your soul

I love your mind

And all it holds

I love the way

You make me feel

I love the fact

That you are real

I love the warmth

You radiate

Even in your hottest state

I love the fact that

In your eyes

Reflect the star

In the sky

Sapphire blue

I see in you

Twelve point star

Tried and true

Strong and hard

Gentle and kind

True and blue

In my mind

This is for you  ❤

  11. Awesome! I love this. Made me think of this –

    “Every discoloration of the stone,
    Every accidental crack or dent,
    Seems a water-course or an avalanche,
    Or lofty slope where it still snows
    Though doubtless plum or cherry-branch
    Sweetens the little half-way house
    Those Chinamen climb towards, and I
    Delight to imagine them seated there;
    There, on the mountain and the sky,
    On all the tragic scene they stare.
    One asks for mournful melodies;
    Accomplished fingers begin to play.
    Their eyes mid many wrinkles, their eyes,
    Their ancient, glittering eyes, are gay.”
    — William Butler Yeats (RIP 1939), excerpt of “Lapis Lazuli” (ancient name for Sapphire)
