Curse of the Opal

Curse of the Opal

Opal is the birthstone for the month of October. You may have heard that the opal brings bad luck and is an evil stone. Some people claim that’s not true, while others know better. I was born in October and you’re safe—for now. A poem in honor of my latest release — Opal’s Disappearance.

Curse of the Opal
A Beautiful Opal
Burns With Fire
The Brilliant Colors
Like New Lovers Desire
Hot Glowing Color
From A Rainbow Of Hue
Given By An Admirer
Whose Heart Is True
A Gift From The Heart
To One That Is Loved
The Sparkle So Pure
Like The Stars Up Above
The Stars With Their Sparkle
That Dance Round The Moon
The Rainbow Of Colors
Could Spell Pending Doom
The Opal Is Worn
By Only A Few
And Worn Without Fear
If Your Birthmonth Is True
Do Not Try To Lie
Do Not Try To Cheat
The Curse Of The Opal
Is Bittersweet


  1. I didn’t know that about opal but I like learning new things. Really good poem! Strong imagery.

  2. Opals has always fascinated me and I’m glad I was born in October. Glad you enjoyed the poem.

  3. That’s a great poem! Is it an foretelling of what happens in Opal’s Disappearance?

  4. I love my opals but only wear them for special occasions after discovering how easily the fracture. lost the stones out of two rings i tried wearing every day.

  5. Yes, Stormy, the poem hints at the turbulence of the story within. Sheryl will never look at an opal the same way again.

  6. I love my opals too, Larriane. The fire and color of the stone is gorgeous.
