Fading Diamonds

Those sparkling diamonds
Where the light
Is hitting the water
Are not real

But they seem so real
Even leaving an after-image
On my eyes
When I look away

They exist
And bring beauty
To the world
But they do not last

Already they are fading
As the light
Changes direction
And the sun moves
