Exquisite is a word
I have reserved
for what lies hidden
the veils of self-doubt.

For this word alone
feels sophisticated,
even to the tongue-

Exquisite, what’s in a word?

It’s fine cut elegance,
a flawless, multi-faceted
shimmering diamond,
commanding attention,
to meticulous handicraft.

Or exquisite,

A roughly formed raw crystal,
untouched for many years,
a humble and rustic presence
with its power so silent
you can see the light
within it.
