The Ring

By Gypsie-Ami Offenbacher-Ferris

In response to word prompt RING provided by Fandango for Fandango’s One Word Challenge.

the colors sparkle
reflected moonlight
sending brilliant arcs
of color swirling
around the third
finger of her left hand

the love finger

a rainbow of colors
dance inside the stone
vying for dominance
inside their crystal prison
purples, greens, blues,
oranges, yellows and reds

all together separately

a shank of brilliant
hardened white gold
holds the rarest stone
within its unyielding grasp
the never-ending circlet
pinning it all in place

stronger than steel

four sharp pointed prongs
offering a promise
of things to come
that never could be
that never would be
impossible dreams

the end
