All That Glitters…

Russian Haiku composer Alexey Andreyev wrote:

evening sky —
over the city lights
stars hardly seen

It seems that Alexey is telling us to look beyond the man-made glitz to see the God-given glory that we too often miss.  In response, here is my haiku:

even diamonds

lose their brilliance

amongst ice cubes

written for Carpe Diem
