Capsules of gemstones

A poet laughs in the dark
the bliss of pen to paper

Lines lie under the mattress
in a golden notebook,
a golden time capsule,
a prose vault holding
ruby emotions,
amber conversations,
and emerald green scenery
to entertain a curious imagination
with a love for genuine gemstones

A poet laughs in the dark
the bliss of reading old poems

I like the colours in this, specially amber conversations.

I like the beginning and ending; they are almost like bookends! And, yes, I've put poems under my mattress, too!

I like the theme - the idea of associating it with gems is appealing
