uncut diamonds…

uncut diamonds

as bapa dola
stood near
the water’s edge
a student of his
said that
he had heard
in the village
from a war lord
the honor
of dying
for one’s land
bapa dola
tossed a stone
into the water
and said
see the rings
that move away
as the stone
enters the water
the rings
pull the eyes away
the tragedy
of the stone’s death
a stone
could have held
a diamond’s beauty
