Hello My Question Mark Ring!

You’re back on My Right Middle Finger

from where You should

never have strayed

I Love You Question Mark Ring

with Your enormous chunk of cut quartz crystal

& Your lower level of twenty-four diamonds

shaped for Your Name

I am proud of You

& All You Represent:

My Fortitude

My Grace

My Happiness of Place

The Question is merely

for Those Who Do Not Know Me

for I open up to anyone


I open up for You

My Dearest Emblem of Faith
