Diamond necklace

A diamond necklace adorned me

Awesome, my mirror called me

Overwhelmed in proudness

Enjoyed the envious eyes around me

Until I found two blind eyes staring at me

Was it my own soul, masked under blindness?

            Keeping that aside, lot of interconnected memories rushed in with the word Diamond Necklace, the recent one being the Lal Jose Film, a lesson from chemistry in school, Maupassant’s story, in addition to the the various ads for the jewellery .. 🙂

    Soul laughed after a minute,
    And after that every cell in body ,
    Laughed heavily following soul
    Then mind said ” darling,what’s the cost of necklace in heaven”

    Beauty lies in the eyes of beholder. Leave alone a blind person, if i take the same diamond neclace to toddler and an ice cream in other hand, they would chose the later. Perspectives of life – its all about what our hearts desire 🙂

    Come on, it isn’t criminal to flaunt something and enjoy the attention. Just that one must know that their worth is more than some piece of jewellery.

    Whoa! This was deep at so many levels 🙂

    Although, it is okay to flaunt it at times…

    Oh the sparkle of the diamond mars the fact that this is just another ‘material’ that will diminish with time.
