Tina,
This is a very lovely 5-7-5 that sparkles. It is very creative comparing diamond to tears in the way that you did. Nice photo. Good luck in the contest.
Cindy

I like your metaphor here. I can see why it was recognized. I think a lot of celebrities are sad. I think a lot of them don't get the childhoods they deserve because a lot of then grew up with stage parents and that can do a lot of damage to a person.

    I agree. They make up for that loss by buying things. Good point. I appreciate your comments!

To some extent we all hide our true feelings to get through life and smile when we really feel sad inside. We cheer ourselves by putting on a brave face, I enjoyed the sentiments here Tina, love Dolly x

    Thank you, Dolly. I especially appreciate your deeper thoughts on it. We all have probably hidden things inside, and put on a brave face.
    Have a great Friday:)

Very good and very creative! Good graphic too! The glossy finish to this photo certainly gives this a retro look. Good message and love the use of "iridescent." Wonderful! Thanks for sharing.

Very effective use of metaphorical jewels as tear drops. Your poetic structure quite well.
I like the way you asked a question in the end, leaving the reader to ponder the meaning of your poem and how often people wearing diamonds are secretly very sad.
Well done!

I suppose this country girl has never truly understood the great allure of diamonds. I guess I would have to be in the 'for show' camp. I do have to say, the picture including those earrings is stunning.

I enjoyed your use of words including the objective and the subjective, diamonds and tears. The picture matches the words of your poem. It was a great read.

It is so conceivable that the earings they wear are the tears they drop. Not all celebrities should be included, however. The possibility is just that; a possibility. LOL Ralf

This work has reached the exceptional level
Simple and elegant in its simplicity and its depth.
I wonder if many of the celebrities can discern the difference between their public and private personas long enough to let tears (real or role ) flow.
I applaud the use of the photo to enhance the impact of your words on the reader.
Excellent!

You have made excellent use of your seventeen syllables in this thoughtful and thought-provoking piece. You have conveyed a powerful message about the possible significance of jewelry we choose to wear--just looks good with the dress, signifies how we are feeling, . . .?

    You are right...wearing expensive jewelry could be for any number of reasons, and not bad ones, but I was reminded of some actresses in the news that were very sad, surprisingly. Thanks for reading and reviewing!
