Amethyst

AMETHYST

Impressed by the amethyst.

My birthstone
grins in violet,
not shyly
but glaringly
bold…

tipsies things
’til stirred;

leaps on toes
from magenta paths
to magic carpets
flying!

Am I this
amethyst?
I’m trying.

    Love these lines: “…pirouettes
    from magenta paths
    to magic carpets…”

    What a great idea – to link your birthstone with your personality.

    Joy Acey encouraged me to add alliteration, use less words, and end with a rhyme.
    What a boost! Grateful for the collaboration. It works with Joy every time!

    No doubt numerologists would have a ball with your bday this year:
    2/13/13
    Mine is 2/5/13!
    OMG that totals 20!!!
    Numbers are as magical as poetry!
