The Search

Examine each gem
Searching for one better than this one here
This one has a small imperfection
However small I search for smaller

Ahhh here I have found one with no imperfections
It is a dream or can it be real?
Finally finding this perfect gem
Now my search can stop

I pause

I brush the powder of a destroyed gem aside
Start searching again for a gem with fewer imperfections than this one here

Always pursue perfection
Nature abhors perfection
