I dive to one small reef
In the center of your warm sea
Where the mother of pearl grows lustrous
In a soft shelled oyster
Veiled by feather coral
Bedded in shifting sand
The shell so delicate
It must be opened only under water
By the diver's lips
The pearl
Coaxed from its glistening membrane
By a quick turn
Of the diver's tongue
