Jade Dam

Chihuahua

Green and white

Melded, blended and woven together

A cacophony of contrast and harmony

Cold like stone…

My jade dam

Veins of color running through

Copper tones and blue cracks

Adding character, giving depth

Like scars… less plain now

My jade wall so scarred, not disfigured…

Not weak…

The water it holds, placid

Deep darkness concealing secrets

Gales and storms result only in ripples…

Jade dam keeping them out

Protecting, shielding…

Walls as cold as ice

Unrelenting strength, it stands…

Not to keep in, but to keep out

I'm jaded…
