fire opal

I am wearing the beautiful fire opal earrings and necklace he gave me. This gem could be mistaken for turquoise except for its brilliance. Yet I am conflicted about wearing jewelry given to me by a man who presented them with such affection and who no longer returns my calls.

I didn't want to hurt him by returning his gifts, though I am unsure whether it is right for me to continue adorning myself with his love tokens.

the dust of flames
this fire gone to coals
and echoes of my calling voice

Legjobb kivansag, baratom Nora. _Magyar

Thank you, dear Magyar. This a form that is escaping me. What is it? Very well put. And I believe this is a Hungarian greeting?

In case Magyar doesn't get back to you, the form is a cinquain. Five lines of 2-4-6-8-2 syllables.

And my opinion? A beautiful gift is still beautiful no matter what comes after, so wear it as a celebration of its beauty. --Diane
